I realized a little slowly that I've read Valenzuela's take on Chilean political polarization before and so none of this felt new. I think the political econ explanation for Allende's collapse is a critical piece of the story, but this book ignores other pieces such as the U.S. role and changes within the military as an institution. I did talk to some Chilean professors who were much more positive on Valenzuela's argument. Grad school polisci.

Un análisis comprensivo de los eventos y decisiones que tuvieron como consecuencia el golpe de '73. Sr. Valenzuela considera todas perspectivas de una manera justa y racional.
