Klubock (Univ. of Virginia), an acclaimed scholar and expert on Chile's social and labor history, offers an engaging, well-researched historical account of the country's 1934 Ránquil rebellion. Though the events are part of the country's collective memory, the topic has been, until now, understudied in Chilean history. This outstanding book shows the levels of political violence in the country at the time. Chronologically organized, it starts with the expansion of large estates and the origins of land disputes in the south following the military occupation of the Mapuche territory in the 1870s. This long historical overview allows the author to connect the local revolt to the many peasant and labor struggles that plagued the region during that period. Klubock then moves into the uprising and the aftermath of its repression, offering a bottom-up approach to the revolt. The analysis of court documents is especially noteworthy, demonstrating the possibilities of reading state documents against the grain. Overall, the book contributes to an understanding of the cycles of resistance, political violence, and authoritarianism in Chile and Latin America. It also offers a model for studying rural rebellions, violence, and memory. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Advanced undergraduates through faculty. --Angela Vergara, California State University, Los Angeles
