Om boka

With a focus on Chile, Pinochet's Economic Accomplices: An Unequal Country by Force uses theoretical arguments and empirical studies to argue that focusing on the behavior of economic actors of the dictatorship is crucial to achieve basic objectives in terms of justice, memory, reparation, and non-repetition measures. The editors and contributors argue that this is crucial largely because a basic principle of justice indicates that those who contributed to the violation of human rights must be held accountable, and that same responsibility can generate preventative measures for the future. Furthermore, making visible the economic accomplices creates a more complete narrative of the recent past and questions society, rather than ignoring the economic factors that made a criminal regime possible, which creates the risk of hindering inclusive democratic measures in the future. Scholars of Latin American studies, history, sociology, and economics will find this book particularly useful.
