Review

"[A] remarkable achievement. . . . [I]mpressive."
--John Lear, "American Historical Review"

"[A] most impressive book and one of the best published on Chile in recent years."
--Alan Angell, "Journal of Latin American Studies"

"[A]n excellent source to study recent Chilean history. . . ."
--Vania Barraza Toledo, "Arizona Journal of Hispanic Cultural Studies
"

"What makes "Victims of the Chilean Miracle" so relevant is that the Chilean case resonates so loudly with so many countries throughout the world today."
--Edward Paulino, "Labor History"

"Peter Winn's "Victims of the Chilean Miracle" brilliantly documents the pivotal anti-labor focus, particularly in the agricultural, forestry, and the fisheries sectors."
--James M Cypher, Dollars and Sense

"[A] well-crafted and superbly edited volume. . . . Winn and his colleagues have, without question, produced a valuable contribution to our understanding of the so-called 'Chilean miracle'."
--David Scott Palmer," Perspectives on Political Science"

"If the myth of 'The Chilean Miracle" is dying a slow death (among academics, at least) then Peter Winn's edited volume Victims of the Chilean Miracle is akin to an anxious and skillful gravedigger. . . . The collection, quite simply, is strong from cover to cover."
--Patrick Barr-Melej, "E.I.A.L"

"[T]his book eloquently and pointedly challenges the myth of the 'Chilean miracle' by focusing on the impact that neoliberal policies had and have on the Chilean working class and the labor movement. . . . Peter Winn has done an outstanding job of envisioning this project and organizing this book. . . . [P]oignant. . . . All Latin Americanists should read this outstanding collection of essays."
--Margaret Power, "Latin American Politics and Society"

"[A] sophisticated collection of essays about working class lives and labor relations in the context of the Chilean and global political economy of the past three decades. The book smoothly integrates disciplinary approaches and pays heed to the varied spatial dimensions of social life, from the local and regional to the national and global. . . . "Victims of the Chilean Miracle" leaves the reader informed and agitated about the fate of workers in Chile over the past three decades."
--Jody Pavilack," Labor"

Showcasing some of the best current U.S. work on recent Chilean labor and economic history, this collection lays to rest any remaining doubts as to the partial and extremely uneven nature of the economic miracle and its devastating impact on workers. Especially welcome are discussions of neoliberalism s contributions to environmental degradation and its contradictory impact on working-class culture and gender relations. Florencia Mallon, editor of When a Flower Is Reborn: The Life and Times of a Mapuche Feminist by Rosa Isolde Reuque Paillalef"

The great strength of this volume is that it provides readers with an original, historically based, human-focused analysis of the so-called Chilean miracle. Brian Loveman, author of Chile: The Legacy of Hispanic Capitalism"
