Allende's Chile and the Inter-American Cold War

"Fidel Castro described Salvador Allende's democratic election as president of Chile in 1970 as the most important revolutionary triumph in Latin America after the Cuban revolution. Yet celebrations were short lived. In Washington, the Nixon administration vowed to destroy Allende's left-wing government while Chilean opposition forces mobilized against him. The result was a battle for Chile that ended in 1973 with a right-wing military coup and a brutal dictatorship lasting nearly twenty years. Tanya Harmer argues that this battle was part of a dynamic inter-American Cold War struggle to determine Latin America's future, shaped more by the contest between Cuba, Chile, the United States, and Brazil than by a conflict between Moscow and Washington. Drawing on firsthand interviews and recently declassified documents from archives in North America, Europe, and South America--including Chile's Foreign Ministry Archive--Harmer provides the most comprehensive account to date of Cuban involvement in Latin America in the early 1970s, Chilean foreign relations during Allende's presidency, Brazil's support for counterrevolution in the Southern Cone, and the Nixon administration's Latin American policies. The Cold War in the Americas, Harmer reveals, is best understood as a multidimensional struggle, involving peoples and ideas from across the hemisphere"--Provided by publisher.

  • ""La vía chilena al socialismo, que comenzó con el triunfo electoral de Salvador Allende el 4 de septiembre de 1970, no sólo marcó un destino difícil, completamente nuevo, para este país del Cono Sur: también se convirtió en un camino admirado y detestado dentro de las altas esferas de la política internacional, e hizo de Chile uno de los escenarios más singulares de la Guerra Fría que recién comenzaba a aflojar sus feroces tensiones. Este libro ... no sólo revela la relación del gobierno de Allende con Estados Unidos y la Unión Soviética, además del apoyo crucial de Cuba, sino también el insospechado papel del gobierno militar de Brasil, así como el peso de las gestiones y acuerdos con Perú, Argentina, Bolivia, Uruguay, México, con el Movimiento de Países No Alineados y otras instancias multilaterales. Producto de una investigación larga y cuidadosa, que incluye documentos recién desclasificados y entrevistas exclusivas con protagonistas de varios países, El gobierno de Allende y la Guerra Fría interamericana es una obra ejemplar de historia internacional que ilumina un momento complejo y hasta ahora opaco del pasado de Chile y el mundo." --Contratapa."@es

  • "This ms is an international history of the inter-American Cold War. Harmer looks at Chile during the presidency of Salvador Allende (1970-73) and outlines how he proposed a constitutional "Chilean road to socialism." This call for a peaceful transformation of the inter-American system and international economic relations abroad resulted in a violent, unconstitutional future for Chile, with a right-wing dictatorship drowning out the promise of a revolution in the Southern Cone as well as the global South's continued dependency on the North."@en
