Complicity and Complacency in Chile since Pinochet
“Provacative, conceptually powerful, and fluidly expressed, Lazzara's book forces a reckoning with the active, ample ways Chileans violently transformed politics, the economy, and the social fabric to lasting effect amid ongoing denial. The arguments and implications extend well beyond Chile to our own politics and societies.”
