Détente Unmasked, January–October 1972
This chapter shows how enthusiastically Allende spoke about signs that the world was undergoing some sort of profound transformation. “The American empire is showing signs of crisis,” Allende proclaimed. “The dollar has become nonconvertible. Apparently, the definitive victory of the Vietnamese people is drawing near.” More important, “The countries of Latin America [were] speaking the same language and using the same words to defend their rights.” Yet the transformative trends in international affairs in the early 1970s were obviously far more complicated than Allende suggested. In many ways, the world was changing dramatically, but not necessarily in the manner in which Allende implied.
