During the first quarter of the twentieth century, there originated in Chile a labor movement which was to prove both important and unique. Peter Deshazo sets out here to furnish a detailed case study of that movement. By challenging previously held and often politically motivated conceptions of the Chilean unions, and by examining such hitherto unexplored sources as government documents and labor newspapers, he is able to illuminate the origins and development of an often successful and surprisingly autonomous labor campaign. Students and scholars of Latin America, labor history, comparative social movements, and political science will find the resultant pathbreaking study of the Chilean working class and its progressive mobilization valuable reading.

“DeShazo’s focus on working-class and union experience in Santiago and Valparaiso, Chile’s central industrial cities, breaks new ground. . . . DeShazo presents a major challenge to the Marxist orthodoxy that traditionally has dominated Chilean labor and working-class historiography.”—Carl E. Solberg, American Historical Review
