A very strong and in depth history of Chile, but as the title suggest, be prepared to see lots of numbers. Loveman's book demonstrate how intimately tied together the political history and economic history of Chile really were. It is impossible to understand one without the other.

I love Chile! I have been fascinated with this south american republic for almost two decades and can never tire learning as many details as I can about what makes the country tick. Travel books are fine, but getting in to the depth and breadth of history, society, economics, and politics of a place really provide so much needed back drop to the pretty pictures. This heavy read is satisfying in a sugar-sprinkled, deep-fried spudnut way.
