Castro, Allende, Nixon, and the Inter-American Cold War

(p.20) 1 Ideals
Allende's Chile and the Inter-American Cold War

Tanya Harmer

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter focuses on the ideological fervor in Chile that resulted as much from internal as from external factors. International developments had profoundly influenced Chilean politics throughout the first half of the twentieth century despite it being the country furthest away from both superpowers, nestled between the Andes and the Pacific at the southernmost tip of the Americas. Whether affected by the result of the Great Depression of the 1930s or the Korean and Vietnam wars, Chile's export-orientated economy fluctuated with global copper markets, the Santiago-based United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America expounded theories of dependency that were taken up by many others in the Third World, and new ideas from abroad fertilized those already present and growing within Chilean society.

Keywords:   ideological fervor, Chilean politics, Great Depression, Vietnam wars, export-orientated economy
