Pinochet in Piccadilly: Britain and Chile's Hidden History

by Andy Beckett - £8.99  Faber and Faber (2003)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571215478 | ISBN 10: 0571215475

In October 1998, the erstwhile Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet was arrested in London and charged with crimes against humanity by a Spanish magistrate. But over the sixteen months that Pinochet was detained, intriguing questions went unanswered about his close ties with Britain. Why was Lady Thatcher so keen to defend the General? And why was Tony Blair's usually cautious government prepared to have him arrested? As Andy Beckett uncovers, the answers reside deep within the long and shadowy history of relations between Britain and Chile.
