These are new and significant insights into the demanding situations dealing with Chile as a version democracy.  one of the principal questions they ask:  How do postauthoritarian administrations take care of the troubling legacy of such regimes?  To what volume do unresolved human rights violations and army strength represent a disadvantage to democracy?  How has the Chilean Catholic Church stimulated the evolution of democratic institutions?  students of Latin American, political, and fiscal reports will welcome this finished yet concisely written volume.
