Published by dwalcher on


Our ongoing series on Latin America’s Cold War continues, returning to Chile.  Dustin sat down with Dr. James Lockhart, Assistant Professor of History at Zayed University, to talk about his book, Chile, the CIA and the Cold War: A Transatlantic Perspective (Edinburgh University Press, 2019).  Lockhart explains the importance of situating Latin America’s Cold War into the story of the Global Cold War.  The two also discuss the challenges of studying the history of covert action.  Enjoy!
