About the Author
Patricia Politzer was, in a national radio broadcast in 1978, one of the first journalists to speak out against the Pinochet coup, and for many years she had a weekly political interview column in the opposition newspaper La Epoca. She is now a cabinet member in the Chilean government under President Lagos.
"Must-reading for would-be dictators. . . . Chileans had always thought 'it can't happen here'; Politzer, one of Chile's best opposition journalists, shows how it did." --The New York Times\ "Every story has revealing, touching moments. . . . The voices in Fear in Chile tell about events in Chile but say much more about the human spirit." --The Boston Globe "Vivid. . . . Politzer's interviews weave a chronicle of sustained horror." --Los Angeles Times Book Review "A remarkable and moving document about life under military dictatorship." --Newsday "Dramatic. . . . A timely, balanced report." --Kirkus Reviews
