Chile, the CIA and the Cold War

A Transatlantic Perspective

First Edition

James Lockhart

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Reinterprets Chile and southern South America's Cold War experience from a transatlantic perspective
  • Draws upon archival sources from several countries, including recently declassified documents in the United States
  • Explicitly connects Chile and the transatlantic origins of the whole Cold War to subsequent Chilean history from the late-1940s into the 1970s
  • Acknowledges the importance and pertinence of intra-Latin American relations, particularly Chileans' relations with their neighbours
  • Reconstructs Chile's early nuclear history and folds it into the larger whole of the Eisenhower administration's Atoms for Peace proposal and the IAEA's subsequent history, further mapping the emergence of the global nuclear landscape
