Pinochet and Me: A Chilean Anti-Memoir - used book

1998, ISBN: 1859843603

ID: 3082698

The earthshaking news of October 1998 that General Pinochet had been arrested in Britain unleashed two years of international interest in the case and its ramifications for traveling tyrants the world over. But even after the General's return home, the media has ignored the more important story of how his detention lifted a stranglehold that had suffocated Chile's moral sensibility for a generation.Award-winning journalist Marc Cooper was a translator to President Allende until the coup of 1973. In this reflection on Chile and the role it has played in his life, he reconstructs the tense atmosphere of the final days of the Allende government, including his hiding and subsequent evacuation under armed UN protection. Twenty-five years later he returns and recounts, in vivid street-level reporting, a country that is a democracy in name only and a society that has been transfigured by one of the most radical, armed capitalist revolutions of our time. Yet, he argues, spasms of protest that seemed like the last rattle of the snake may still presage the crumbling of Chile's status quo as its people emerge from the long night of reaction to the cry of "Adios General! americas,biographies,caribbean and latin american,central america,chile,comparative politics,government,history,humanities,international and world politics Comparative Politics, Verso

Pinochet and Me: A Chilean Anti-Memoir - used book

ISBN: 9781859843604

ID: 7596173

In writing from Chile Marc Cooper vividly evokes the tense atmosphere of the final days of the Allende government. When he revisits years later, he finds a sham of democracy but also spasms of protest in the wake of Pinochet's arrest that may at last shake Chile's status quo. This book brings to life the compelling human history buried under three decades of official distortions in some of the darkest chapters of US Cold War policy.
