The Chile Reader makes available a rich variety of documents spanning more than five hundred years of Chilean history. Texts and images provide insights into the ways that Chile's unique geography has shaped its national identity, the country's unusually violent colonial history, and the stable but autocratic republic that emerged after independence from Spain. They shed light on Chile's role in the world economy, the social impact of economic modernization, and the enduring problems of deep inequality. The Reader also covers Chile's bold experiments with reform and revolution and its much-admired transition to democracy and a market economy in the years since dictatorship.
The book discusses the last Chilean earthquake which occurred in 2010. Written by author contributors from different disciplines, the book presents a comprehensive view of the occurrence. Authors come from academia and the public and private sectors to give an idea of complementary approaches that range from theoretical descriptions to practice and emergency solutions. It will be suitable for professionals and researchers taking decisions, undergraduate and postgraduate students and teachers at university levels.

This book analyzes Chile's political economy over the last 30 years and the country's attempt to build a market society in a highly inegalitarian society, now as a member country of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. In this examination, the country's cultural underpinnings of the imposition of free markets, the macroeconomic and growth performance of the 1990s and 2000s and the social record of privatization of education, health and social security are discussed. The treatment documents the growing concentration of economic power among small groups of elites in Chile and discusses the limits of the democratic system built after the Pinochet regime.
