Workers Control in Allende's Chile, by Andrew Zimbalist and James Petras
Booklet published by the Institute of Workers Control in the mid 1970's, 8 pages. A5 size booklet (N4040P1)
Salvador Allende became President of Chile in November 1970 and was overthrown and murdered by a US backed coup almost 3 years later. During Allende's 3 years in office the Chilean economy experienced profound change - the great landed estates were broken up, the major mineral industries were all nationalised, social welfare was hugely expanded, and their was a considerable redistribution of wealth. This booklet provides a brief assessment of workers control during this period - the role of worker representatives, administration & factory councils, and shop floor production committees.
Condition of the booklet is generally good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, and some wear around the old printed price in the bottom right hand corner, but the staple spine is intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. Their is a small amount of rusting and discoloration around the staples.
