Item description for Yo, Augusto/i, Augusto Pinochet by Ernesto Ekaizer...

This book, based on more than one thousand interviews and based on the research of thousands of secret documents recently declassified, is the story of the man who continues to gain momentum in finding a place in the universal history of infamy. This is the life of an old, but still challenging and threatening general who encouraged the tenebrous "Caravan of Death". Ernesto Ekaizer won the journalism award "Ortega and Gasset" for his essays about the Pinochet case.

Description in Spanish: Contra todo pronstico, la noche del 16 de octubre de 1998 Augusto Pinochet era arrestado en una clnica londinense. El bombardeo del Palacio de la Moneda, las ltimas palabras de Salvador Allende y los rostros de las vctimas de la sangrienta represin que desat en Chile el golpe del 11 de septiembre de 1973 resucitaban casi treinta aos despus. La detencin del dictador abra un debate acerca de las competencias de la justicia internacional para perseguir a los torturadores y genocidas. En la sociedad chilena, el pacto tcito de reconciliacin la presunta "transicin", fundamentado en el olvido y la absolucin, saltaba por los aires. Algunos llegaron a decir que Espaa colocaba a Chile al borde del abismo.

Anciano, pero an desafiante y amenazador, el general que alent la tenebrosa "Caravana de la Muerte" vea esfumarse su sacrosanta impunidad a consecuencia de una de esas paradjicas jugadas de la historia que los dictadores, necios, cegados por el resplandor siniestro de su imagen, no suelen presentir.

El juez Baltasar Garzn, el fiscal Carlos Castresana, los abogados Joan Garcs, Enrique de Santiago y Carlos Slepoy en Espaa, Andy McEntee en Londres y letrados de las vctimas en Chile, como Carmen Hertzy Eduardo Contreras, entre muchos otros, aunaron sus esfuerzos para conseguir el sueo: un juicio de Nuremberg para los militares comprometidos en las desapariciones, ejecuciones y torturas. El retorno del ex dictador a Chile, lejos de suponer el final de la historia, dio un nuevo impulso a la causa bajo el liderazgo del juez Guzmn.

Este libro, que se basa en ms de mil entrevistas y la consulta de millares de papeles secretos recientemente desclasificados, es un relato sobre el hombre que sigue ganndose a pulso un lugar en la historia universal de la infamia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Yo, Augusto/i, Augusto Pinochet?

scholarly, well documented account about Pinochet's regime  Mar 29, 2006
This book presents a well documented picture of Pinochet's regime in Chile and the experiences of many whose basic civil liberties were denied in the best cases and in the worst case killed or dissappeared. Starting with the bloody coup d'etat in 1973, the military Junta turned Chile's democratic social experiment in an ELECTED socialist government to more than a decade of repression. This dictatorship sponsored a complete rewriting of the legal and constitutional framework of the country by the military and their civilian supporters. A book worth reading as the ravages of this US-backed right wing conservative dictatorship and its uncontrolled neo-liberal economic policies were a blight on generations of Chileans and has left indelible traces of its social and psychological destruction still tangible 15 years after Chile "transitioned" to democracy.
Book in good conditions anf fast delivery  Mar 20, 2006
Very good experience with this seller. five stars.
A good book, biased  Apr 6, 2004
A good biased account. Strongly from the left the journalist dissects and documents the Pinochet regime, explaining in terrible detail the horrors he visited upon many in Chile. The major drawback here is the fact that this book does not acknowledge that had socialist revolution not be stopped by Pinochet it would have continued on its course and Chili would look like Cuba today without freedom of speech and the other horrors of dictatorship. In the final analysis Pinochet was the lesser of two evils, regardless of the anti-Pinochet propaganda.
