Abstract : This memorandum considers Soviet influence in Latin America in the 1960's and 1970's. In two countries, in particular, the tensions and contradictions of Soviet ideology and practice were demonstrated: Cuba and Chile. Both had relatively large and long-standing Communist parties. In both, Communist influence expanded suddenly and rapidly in ways which tested the Soviet Union's ability to respond both as a government and as a ideological center. At least from the vantage of the late 1970's those responses met with varying degrees of success which this memorandum attempts to evaluate. (Author)
