Product description


Using interviews, eye-witness accounts and quotes from sources on Pinochet, this volume tracks the General's journey from his rise to power in 1973 to his unprecedented arrest and internment in Britain in October 1998. It contains revelations about the financial dealings of the Pinochet regime, and presents evidence of arms and drug-running. It details the assassination operations carried out by Chile's state security apparatus, the DINA, against three Chileans abroad which resulted in the murder of four individuals. The book highlights the consequences of his arrest in terms of international law, and tells the story of legal intrigue behind the search for justice. Moreover, it provides an analysis of Pinochet's role in building modern Chile and in the politics of torture.

From the Author

This book tells what Pinochet's supporters would rather hide
How close was the Pinochet regime to the drug trade? Is Pinochet still a member of the Catholic church or is he excommunicated? How rich has the Pinochet family become? Answers to these questions are to be found in my book. But there is still a lot more investigation which my friends and I are working on!
