On September 11, 1973, General Augusto Pinochet led a bloody coup against President Salvador Allende in Chile. Allende died in the Presidential Palace as it was attacked by Pinochet’s army.

Controversy still surrounds the role of Washington and the CIA in the overthrow of the popularly elected government of Allende, a self-proclaimed Marxist. For decades Allende’s name and the experience of the Popular Unity government was all but erased from history, not only in Chile but internationally.

This first-ever anthology presents Allende’s voice and his vision of a more democratic, peaceful and just world to a new generation.

"“I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist because of the irresponsibility of its own people.”
Henry Kissinger, on the prospect of Allende’s electoral victory in 1970.

"This anthology is the first collection in English of Allende’s speeches and interviews . . . and will be of value for academic collections on Latin America."—Library Journal

Features a substantial biographical introduction on Allende and an extensive chronology and bibliography.
