This book adequately examines and explains the events leading up to and including the military coup in Chile in September 11th 1973 as well as examining the personality of the Chiliean President Salvador Allende. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who would wish to see a stark example of American hypocracy, where the self proclaimed defenders of democracy methodically undermined and destroyed the Chilean economy and funded a bloody military coup against a democratically elected left of centre government. This is a story that need to be told.
