Chile, the CIA and the Cold War

James Lockhart

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter evaluates the rise of social conflict in Chile from the late nineteenth century into the early twentieth. It presents Chile's labor movement, the Chilean Communist Party, Chile's conservatives, Chile's professional officer corps, and the Ibáñez dictatorship as the earliest expression of Cold War struggles in Chile. It connects the Chilean Communist Party to the Comintern's South American Bureau and the Soviet Union. It explains why the dictatorship broke relations with the Soviet Union and suppressed the communist party in 1927. And it reviews the nature of United States perceptions and involvement in these events.

Keywords:   Luis Emilio Recabarren, Russian Revolution, Comintern, Chilean Communist Party, Emil Körner, Arturo Alessandri, Carlos Ibáñez, Mutiny, Marmaduke Grove
