Summary
"Late one Friday night in October 1998, officers of Scotland Yard arrested General Augusto Pinochet, dictator of Chile for 17 years, on charges of torture and conspiracy to murder. The arrest marked the first time a former head of state had been detained outside his own country on charges of crimes against humanity, and gave a clear warning to former dictators and heads of abusive regimes." "Through interviews, eyewitness accounts, and new sources, veteran journalist Hugh O'Shaughnessy sifts through the General's personal life, military career, rise to power, and arrest and internment. While researching Pinochet: The Politics of Torture, O'Shaughnessy discovered new evidence of high-level Chilean Army involvement in arms and drug-running, as well as details of the assassination operations carried out by Chile's secret police, the DINA, against three Chileans in Argentina, Europe and the United States." "Pinochet: The Politics of Torture tells the riveting story of the September 1973 coup d'etat, the subsequent crackdown, the long period of repression that has changed Chile's history forever, and highlights the legal intrigue behind the search for justice."--BOOK JACKET
