Summary:
"This biography of Beatriz Allende (1942-1977)-revolutionary doctor and daughter of Chile's socialist president, Salvador Allende-portrays what it means to live, love, and fight for change. Inspired by the Cuban Revolution, Beatriz and her generation drove political campaigns, university reform, public health programs, internationalist guerrilla insurgencies, and government strategies. Centering Beatriz's life within the global contours of the Cold War era, Tanya Harmer exposes the promises and paradoxes of the revolutionary wave that swept through Latin America in the long 1960s"-- Provided by publisher.
