News From the End of the Earth: A Portrait of Chile
Palgrave Macmillan, 15.12.1998 - 250 Seiten
This in-depth study of Chile's history, politics, and economics is written by a man who was British ambassador there from 1982-87. John Hickman witnessed first hand the economic transformation wrought by the "Chicago Boys" in the later Pinochet years and the return from military dictatorship and terror to democracy. The radical left-wing regime of Allende in 1970-3 and its violent overthrow put Chile on the world stage as never before, and its great economic success has kept it there. Hickman traces Chile's emergence and evolution as a state and conveys the unique characteristics and personalities of its leaders.

News from the end of the Earth: a portrait of ChileNutzerbericht - Book Verdict
Chile is a country with an interesting and, especially under Pinochet after the 1973 coup, controversial past. This volume examines that past in two parts: a brief history of the place, and a somewhat personal diplomatic memoir and description of its recent transition years. Hickman was the British ambassador to Chile from 1982 to 1987. His book is a readable and well-written introduction to the history of the country for non-Chileans; its strength lies in its description of the past ten years and Chile's return from dictatorship to democracy. Here the author relies more on personal experience than historical research. Though Hickman has a clear Anglocentric slant, this will be of interest to public and academic libraries with Latin American collections.--Mark L. Grover, Brigham Young Univ. Lib., Provo, UT
