In this compelling narrative history, Peter Winn tells the story of theChilean revolution as it was seen through the eyes of the participants. Winnfocuses on workers at the Yarur plant, Chile's largest cotton mill, who seizedcontrol of their factory and began to socialize its operations. Allende's planswere less radical than their own and the workers found themselves on a collisioncourse with the government. Winn, who interviewed both the workers and Allendewhile many of these events were taking place, captures the turning point inChile's "democratic road to socialism"--in both the presidential palace and theYarur mill. He demonstrates how the revolution was "forged from below" andexplains political complexities that arose from the workers' confrontation withAllende, complexities that have both eluded American understanding andfrustrated U.S. foreign policy. Integrating oral history and penetratinganalysis, the book offers a striking new explanation of how revolutions areradicalized. A major reinterpretation of the Allende era in Chile, this book isalso a human drama that exemplifies "the new narrative history" at itsbest.
