A few comments on the citing of quotations and website documents. (1) Citations for
quotations are labeled to clarify the sources of multiple quotes or if there would be
any question about which source goes with a particular quote; when there are multi-
ple quotes without labels, it can be assumed that the order of the quotes in the
chapter text matches the order of the sources in the notes. (2) Page numbers are
generally omitted for quotes from newspaper articles but included for magazines. (3)
Unless otherwise noted, translations of quotes are my own. (4) Unless otherwise
noted, website documents and press accounts were accessed within a month of the
date of the document or press account.
Introduction to the Trilogy: Memory Box of Pinochet’s Chile
1 Guillermo O’Donnell’s pioneering work is a fine guide to social science schol-
arship on bureaucratic authoritarianism, and (to a more limited extent) subse-
quent literatures on transitions and democratization. See esp. Modernization
and Bureaucratic-Authoritarianism: Argentina, 1966–1973, 2nd ed. (1973; Berke-

tina, 1966–1973, in Comparative Perspective (Berkeley: University of California
Press, 1988); and the adapted reprints and mature reflections in Counterpoints:
Selected Essays on Authoritarianism and Democratization (Notre Dame, Ind.:
University of Notre Dame Press, 1999). Cf. David Collier, ed., The New Authori-
tarianism in Latin America (Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, 1979);
Manuel Antonio Garretón, El proceso político chileno (Santiago: flacso, 1983);
Guillermo O’Donnell, Phillippe Schmitter, and Laurence Whitehead, eds.,
Transitions from Authoritarian Rule: Prospects for Democracy, 4 vols. (Baltimore:
Johns Hopkins University Press, 1986); and Scott Mainwaring, Guillermo
O’Donnell, and J. Samuel Valenzuela, eds., Issues in Democratic Consolidation:
The New South American Democratization in Comparative Perspective (Notre
Dame, Ind.: University of Notre Dame Press, 1992). It should be noted that a
comparative spirit marks this social science literature and often includes con-
sideration of authoritarian regimes and democratic transitions in southern
