Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a concise, well-written and comprehensive history of Chile, one of the America's oldest democracies until the 1973 military coup. It provides an interesting overview of the country's complex history. In the account of the country's return to democracy following the 1973 coup, it presents a fair, balanced treatment.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
From the title of the book,I expected a general history of Chile, but this is mainly an economic history. If the title had reflected this, I should not have been disappointed, but there is too little about politics, culture, religion, philosophy, art, daily life of the people, racial conflicts, etc. If one desires to know all!!?? there is to know about mining, trade, agriculture and people promoting these activities, the book is good enough; but this was not what I expected from the title of the book.
