The popular education and adult literacy movements in Chile have historically represented competing paths toward a literate society: one born and nurtured through bitter nineteenth-century labor struggles, the other a compensatory effort by the modern state to limit the political potential of literacy. Robert Austin's book explores the contest between the state and popular education in three paradigmatic Latin American regimes: that of Eduardo Frei Montalva (Christian Democrat, 1964-70), Salvador Allende (Socialist, 1970-73) and Augusto Pinochet (Dictator, 1973-90). Robert Austin's engaging narrative captures the relationship between the Chilean state, formal and non-formal literacy, and popular education, from the demise of liberal capitalism to the consolidation of neoliberalism. This remarkable investigation of the dynamic link between the historical process, literacy, and pedagogy celebrates popular education's victory in securing the inclusion, and subsequent empowerment, of women and ethnic minorities. The State, Literacy, and Popular Education in Chile, 1964-1990 will be of great interest to political scientists, cultural historians, and scholars of education.aquot;Note once again, aquot; he urges, aquot;the simplicity of expression, both profound and elegant, in the peasanta#39;s language. ... 1967 * incorrectly stated as campafia in Manual de Alfabetizacion para Adultos, 30 Sources: Cortes, ed., Manual del Metodo Psico-social, 64; ... hen harina flour patron landlord chiquillo child riqueza wealth compafiero* comrade compafiero comrade/ /workmate workmate pueblo peopleanbsp;...
