Format: Paperback
"Chile: The Other September 11" is one of the best books available on the tragic events that inaugurated an era of terror and fascism in the small Latin American country. This is an astounding document of what took place when radical right-wing general Augusto Pinochet lead a CIA-backed military coup against the government of ELECTED socialist president Salvador Allende. The most powerful statement the book makes is that now both Chile and the United States share the dreaded date of a Tuesday, September 11 as a day of horror and death, this is eloquently expressed in a memorable essay by Ariel Dorfman. In-between the chapters and in an important chronology the Nixon White House plot to distabalize Allende's government is detailed, showing how the U.S. in part was deeply responsible for the coup and horrors that fell on Chile. Some right-wingers here cringe, trying to make the book sound "one-sided," maybe it is, but the facts sure aren't. It is also ridiculous that some reviewers here try to discount the brilliant speech given by Fidel Castro shortly after the coup. Castro is a revolutionary leader, something hard to grasp through American eyes eventhough now sadly, we can grasp a taste of what Chile experienced with our own day of terrorism and murder. Castro's speech is both a memorable tribute to the Chilean spirit, the Chilean revolution, Allende, and the solidarity between Cuba and Chile, and yet Castro still gives a well-calculated warning about unarmed nations being defenseless against the tyranny of fascist intentions. The book also features some wonderful poetry that expresses the FEELINGS of what happened, this is an insightful style for the book considering Chile is the home of one of the world's great poets, Pablo Neruda, who's sad fate following the coup is detailed here by his wife.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
There are history books that one feels a rush to finish, to learn more, to devour. This book demands to be read slowly. carefully. To feel the words. Not only to understand them intellectually but to feel them in your spirit.
Read the last words of Salvador Allende before La Moneda Palace was bombed. and then read them again.
"It is possible they will smash us," Allenda said "but tomorrow belongs to the people."
Tomorrow belongs to the people.
Read Joan Jara talk about the week her husband Victor was arrested and tortured, and how she later found him.
and read Victor's last poem.
and read Ariel Dorfman talk about how the U.S. September 11th reminded him of the Chilean September 11th.
and read all of this while remembering that the military coup in Chile, the mass killings that followed, the repression and disappearances, the rise of Augusto Pinochet, was all with the support of Nixon and Kissinger.
and then read it all again.

Format: Paperback
I was growing up under the regime of a series of military dictators.Violence was pervasive and even covetous act .As a naturally result of that, every town and community there are at least one or two who dissapeared for a while and returned with black marks all over their bodies. I heard so much horror stories about arrest, interrogation and of course torture. It's a regime imbued its citizens with social-darwinism, male chauvinism, excessive violence, and so-called Military virtue. Individual's liberty and freedom of expression were only existed in books.

For an imbicile American who left scathing review on this book, these are no other than stories from remote third world countries and only possible under COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP. No brother!

my childhood experience probably led me to have a symphathy and emotional cameraderie to Chilean people who suffered so much under the authorative regime of Augusto Pinochet( By the way, it's third class comic opera . When Park Chung Hee was assasinated by one of his own henchmen, Pinochet , who admired Park so much, seriously considered to order entire chile to hoist half-staff . Yeah Dictators also have heartwrenching cameraderie!!)Probably , I am not brave enough to look at my country's history without shuddering .Reading about Chile might be a contingency experience for a coward like me.

This book is consisted of first person anecdotes written by those who lost their loved ones during the septerber 11 1973 and subsequent repression that cost more than 3000 lives. The book's poignant title means more than mere title . It show how the destiny of common people of two countries forever entwined by tragedies happened coincidently on September 11. As the editor of the book wrote these tragedies forever rob people of U.

This little account of Sept 11 Chile will just give you the chills. Although it is very one-sided, it shows this side subtely.
The voices of the people and their stories are heard. It is a great easy read for someone that wants to know about Chile and teh Socialist movement with Salvador Allende. It's a great title too, because it grabs people's attention from the USA. Sometimes in the US other countries' struggles are unknown.
