Item description for Michelle/ from Prisoner to President by Elizabeth Subercaseaux...

Chile, a predominantly Catholic, conservative and sexist country chooses an agnostic and declared feminist woman as their President. This is the life-story of a woman whose strength and determination have helped her overcome the stigma of being declared a traitor and tortured under Pinochet's regime to accept the challenge of building a new future for her country. Description in Spanish: "La vida de Michelle Bachelet no ha sido fcil. Pero quin tiene una vida fcil?, pregunt ella misma la noche de su triunfo electoral. Cuando era ministra de Defensa quisimos conocerla y hacer un libro con su historia para entender cmo fue el proceso que muy pronto la llevara a la presidencia de la repblica. De dnde sacaba fuerzas esta hija del general Bachelet, acusado por el gobierno de Pinochet de traicin a la patria, torturado por sus pares y muerto en la crcel. Ella tambin fue encarcelada y torturada junto a su madre. Sin embargo una vez que asumi el ministerio de Defensa fue capaz de entenderse con los militares y hacerse respetar. En marzo de 2006 entr en La Moneda como presidenta, dispuesta a construir el futuro sin que el pasado le impidiera avanzar hacia la total reconciliacin.
