Abstract

Salvador Allende and his political coalition hoped to change Chile's social and economic system through peaceful means. This paper analyzes why opposition groups protested new policies while other groups used violence to disrupt and later overthrow Allende's government. Included among the latter are the Chilean military and U.S. intelligence agencies. The paper also examines Allende's death and compares conflicting versions of this tragedy.
