An introduction to who Beatriz Allende was and the themes present throughout her life. Following a discussion of the methodological opportunities and challenges posed by biography and microhistories of an individual life, this introduction discusses periodization of reform and and revolution in Chile; youth in Latin America’s long sixties; the revolutionary left; and the history of revolutionary women and gender. In doing so, it suggests a new way of examining the Cold War as lived experience.
