Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

The section Political Movements and Parties (1968-2001) contains serials, monographs, small flyers, and pamphlets published by many of Chile's various political organizations. The publications in this section pertain not to specific political campaigns, but to other political activities and the year-to-year workings of the organizations.This section of this microfilm can seem particularly complicated, simply because of the ephemeral nature of political alliances in Latin America. Movements and parties may change their name, their logo, or their platforms repeatedly. The multi-party political system forces the continual re-negotiation of alliances among parties, and these alliances may be disbanded, reformed, or adjusted from year to year.An effort has been made throughout the microfilm to note relationships among various groups (e.g., Concertación de Partidos por la Democracia (see also Partido por la Democracia, Partido Radical Socialdemócrata, Partido Socialista de Chile)).

The last file in this section, Miscellaneous, contains an enormous amount of ephemeral material in the form of small, single-page flyers, some pamphlets, and the occasional serial. Materials assigned to this file are either published by an unidentifiable organization or an organization for which we have no other materials in this microfilm.Again despite the fact that the file is titled Miscellaneous, the publications in this file should not be ignored. This kind of material may be some of the only evidence available of the diversity and number of small, less well-established political voices in Chile.
