*Disaster in Chile: Allende's Strategy and why it Failed*   Les Evans 
(ed). Pathfinder, 1974.

I think one would be hard pressed to call it one of the best, but it 
could prove useful in that it is a collection of articles from an 
international selection of authors --all Trotskyists, to be sure.

Peter Winn, *Weavers of Revolution: The Yarur Workers and Chile's Road 
to Socialism*  Oxford University, 1986.  Could well be worth a read, at 
least for the popular background in which UP gov. took place.
