A History of Chile, 1808–2002, Second Edition
A History of Chile chronicles the nation’s political, social, and economic
evolution from its independence until the early years of the Lagos regime.
Employing primary and secondary materials, it explores the growth of
Chile’s agricultural economy, during which the large landed estates appeared; the nineteenth-century wheat and mining booms; the rise of the
nitrate mines; their replacement by copper mining; and the diversiﬁcation of the nation’s economic base. This volume also traces Chile’s political
development from oligarchy to democracy, culminating in the election of
Salvador Allende, his overthrow by a military dictatorship, and the return of
popularly elected governments. Additionally, the volume examines Chile’s
social and intellectual history: the process of urbanization, the spread of
education and public health, the diminution of poverty, the creation of a
rich intellectual and literary tradition, the experiences of middle and lower
classes, and the development of Chile’s unique culture.
