CHOICE Review

Stern (history, UW-Madison) examines the collective trauma and Chilean society and individuals by examining the memories Chileans hold of the takeover coup of 1973 and the 17 years of military dictatorship under Augusto Pinochet. Applying a variety of social science research techniques, Stern explores the "memory question" as a new way to construct the history of this period in a society that had 18 years of uninterrupted democratic rule and then had that democracy smothered for over two decades. Presented as the first of a trilogy on the topic, the work utilizes personal narratives of opponents and proponents of the Pinochet government. Highly self-conscious as to methodology, more than a third of the book is devoted to explanatory materials. Stern sees this work as building the foundation for more "memory box" studies as well as a thorough depiction of the tragic events in Chile. It draws from an array of print sources (church and state archives, NGOs and social actors as well as print media) and from interviews and audio and visual sources. Stern also had access to interviews and resources in Chilean society through family connections. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students and some undergraduates. All large university libraries with strong Latin American collections. J. A. Rhodes Luther College
