Abstract

On September 11, 1973, the Chilean military, under the command of General and future dictator Augusto Pinochet, staged a coup against leftist Chilean President Salvador Allende. Allende's death marked the end of his "Chilean Way to Socialism," Allende's concept of creating a socialist state without a traditional Marxist uprising of the proletariat. This paper serves as an "autopsy" of the "Chilean Way to Socialism" in which I examine all of the problems that plagued this social political experiment from its original inception in the mid-1950s to its violent demise in 1973.
