Dictatorship Across Borders: The Brazilian Influence on the Overthrow of Salvador Allende

Dictatorship Across Borders: The Brazilian Influence on the Overthrow of Salvador Allende

Artigo

This article aims to shed light on a neglected area of history by focusing on the following questions: how did the right-wing military regime installed in Brazil influence the overthrow of Salvador Allende? What was the relation between the two countries during the previous years of the Chilean coup d’état? To what extent did Brazil and the United States act as partners in this event? By way of an in-depth archival exploration of one historical example using newly declassified documents, this work aims to open up new possibilities for a wide range of studies on the relations between military governments in South America.
