Weavers of the Revolution: The Yarur Workers and Chile's Road to Socialism

By Peter Winn
Oxford, 1986
328 pp. $19.95
Purchase

The Yarur cotton mill, the largest in Chile, was a bastion of feudal attitudes and practices until its seizure by its workers in the early Allende days. This thoroughgoing recital of the dreams and agonies of a mini-revolution from below, based on interviews, depicts in a colorful manner the rise and fall of a significant worker movement as it came into conflict with Allende's insistence on a revolution from above, and with the Pinochet reaction.
