Chile: The Legacy of Hispanic Capitalism

Chile: The Legacy of Hispanic Capitalism

By Brian Loveman

Oxford University Press, 1979, 429 pp.

Strongly socialist in orientation and wholly partisan in its hostility to the present government, this account traces Chilean developments to mid-1978. To his credit, the author does not attribute the failure of Allende to U.S. meddling but to political ineptitude.
