News From the End of the Earth: A Portrait of Chile

Manufacturer: Palgrave Macmillan
Editorial Review:
This in-depth study of Chile's history, politics, and economics is written by a man who was British ambassador there from 1982-87. John Hickman witnessed first hand the economic transformation wrought by the "Chicago Boys" in the later Pinochet years and the return from military dictatorship and terror to democracy. The radical left-wing regime of Allende in 1970-3 and its violent overthrow put Chile on the world stage as never before, and its great economic success has kept it there. Hickman traces Chile's emergence and evolution as a state and conveys the unique characteristics and personalities of its leaders.
