Abstract:

This memorandum considers Soviet influence in Latin America in the 1960s and 1970s. 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 Unions ability to respond both as a government and as a ideological center. At least from the vantage of the late 1970s those responses met with varying degrees of success which this memorandum attempts to evaluate. Author
