Introducing one of the "darker periods" of both Chilean and U.S. history, the narrator details the 1973 Allende Coup in Chile. The attempted kidnapping/assassination of Rene Schneider is addressed, as is the degree of involvement of the CIA and U.S. government. Also covered are the presidency of Allende, and the rise of Pinochet and his militaristic Junta. The narrator makes no bones about his opinion of Pinochet as a tyrant; his opinion is engaging and can inspire a great class discussion.
