This is the most succint accounting of the Sept 11, 1973 coup in Santiago and actually a good record of the highlights of Allende's time as president from 1970. The anthology format is the strength of this book. It's interesting that Fidel Castro is not listed on the outside of the book, but the longest and clearest discussion is his from pages 49 to 69. Allende's daughter Beatriz discusses him in a very personal manner and she recounts Allende's last words to her "Tell Fidel I will do my duty.. ...more
Fascism, in its violence, wipes out everything. It attacks, closes and crushes the universities. It attacks, represses and persecutes the intellectuals. It attacks political parties and trade unions. It attacks all mass organizations and cultural organizations. There is nothing as violent, as reactionary, as illegal as fascism.

In part the statements by various authors are quite moving. But in whole blaming all on fascism or imperialism may not be logical. Whatever we may call ourselves- commun
Interesting and quite compelling. A reminder that history is written by the victors; and that the US has much to answer for in terms of its impacts on other nations.
The title implied -- at least to me -- that this would be a collection of many people's thoughts and experiences of the coup and events surrounding it. Instead, it is a very narrow selection of an even more narrow point-of-view. It's not uninteresting or irrelevant, but it is misleading in title and small in scope.
I love the works of Isabel Allende - so when I read more about her family, it led me here to this book.

A very interesting and overlooked part of the history of democracy and how easily it can be over turned if it doesn't fit the bigger picture.
This is a very interesting account of the fascist Coup in '73 because it is a compilation of personal experiences.
Brilliant account by numerous people of the US backed fascist coup in Chile.
