On September 11, 1973, a military coup in Chile overthrew the socialist government of Salvador Allende, beginning an era of political repression that lasted over sixteen years. Mary Helen Spooner takes us behind the Pinochet regime's wall of censorship, silence, and propaganda and provides an inside look at a brutal dictatorship. She traces the personal histories of key political figures, explains why many Chileans supported the regime, and reveals the fate of many of its victims. The 1998 arrest of Augusto Pinochet and resulting events serve as a reminder of his harrowing legacy. In a new preface ( Paper edition ) Spooner looks at how Chile has changed in the 1990s and places recent events in a larger historical context.

Contrary to the Libary Journal critic, it was too chaotic in the fighting which encompassed the presidential building to ascertain if President Allende actually committed suicide, he could just as easily been killed outright. Not to convinced by this author about anything, but the declassified CIA/State Department memos and files speak for themselves from Peter Kornbluh's book, The Pinochet File!
