Summary
Hickman (British ambassador in Chile 1982-7) describes how Chile's stability and democracy have been destroyed by events over the last three decades. He examines reforms taken by the Christian Democrats in the 1960s, the political earthquake which followed the election of Salvador Allende, the coup of 1973 and the subsequent repression of opposition by the military regime of Pinochet, the eventual economic renaissance introduced by Pinochet that made Chile's economy the most successful in Latin America; and he concludes with an assessment of the governments of Aylwin and Frei since 1990.
