"Chile: 40 Years After the Coup" with Peter Kornbluh  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

At 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 26, 2013, in the RCAH Theater, Peter Kornbluh, Senior Analyst at the National Security Archive in Washington D.C., will be giving a talk about Chile.

About Peter Kornbluh:

Peter Kornbluh, Senior Analyst at the National Security Archive has worked at the Archive since April 1986. He currently directs the Archive's Cuba and Chile Documentation Projects. He was co-director of the Iran-contra documentation project and director of the Archive's project on U.S. policy toward Nicaragua. From 1990 to 1999, he taught at Columbia University, as an adjunct assistant professor of international and public affairs.

He is the author/editor/co-editor of a number of Archive books: the Archive's first two documents readers: The Cuban Missile Crisis, 1962 and The Iran-Contra Scandal: The Declassified History, both published by the New Press, and Bay of Pigs Declassified: The Secret CIA Report on the Invasion of Cuba (The New Press, 1998). On the 30th anniversary of the Chilean military coup in September 2003 he published The Pinochet File: A Declassified Dossier on Atrocity and Accountability, which the Los Angeles Times selected as a "best book" of the year. The Pinochet File has been translated into Spanish and published in Barcelona as Pinochet: Los Archivos Secretos. A smaller book on the United States and the overthrow of the government of Salvador Allende has been published in Chile under the title: Los EEUU y el Derrocamiento de Allende.
