Overview

Once a byword for military repression and human rights abuses, Chile's image is now that of a dynamic economic success story. The "Chilean miracle", based on radical free-market reform and exportled growth, has been presented as a model for all developing countries. Yet this transition has also created its own social problems, challenging traditional values with the advent of extreme materialism. And with many scars left by the Pinochet dictatorship, Chile remains a country divided by its painful history. Famed for its spectacular landscapes which range from glaciers to deserts, Chile is also home to a vibrant cultural life, exemplified by writers such as Pablo Neruda and Ariel Dorfman. Music, cinema and handicrafts reflect the country's artistic diversity as well as its mixed ethnic traditions.
