“A fast and powerful read, and its themes are still relevant today… and shows vividly the suffering others have endured at our hands, the same sort of suffering our government has pledged to fight… This book is the kind of true testimonial that all Americans should read.”—Clamor

“A worthwhile compilation for libraries and bookstores seeking titles on the subject.”—Criticas

This anthology reclaims the date of September 11 as the anniversary of the U.S.-backed coup in Chile in 1973 by General Augusto Pinochet against the popularly elected Allende government. Contributors include Ariel Dorfman, Pablo Neruda, Salvador Allende, Fidel Castro.

Interesting and quite compelling. A reminder that history is written by the victors; and that the US has much to answer for in terms of its impacts on other nations. Read full review
