Salvador Allende became President of Chile in November 1970 and was overthrown and murdered by a US backed coup almost 3 years later, a coup led by General Pinocjet, a Chilean army officer.

The authors explain and illuminate the rift in Chilean society that widened dramatically during the Pinochet era, and the brutality of the Pinochet's Military dictatorship....
Condition of the book is generally very good. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs and blemishes, and some nibbling and wear around the edges, but the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
