A través de documentación archivística y periodística se analizan las distintas expresiones de conflicto que se vivieron en Cautín entre 1967 y 1973: desde las tradicionales expresiones de rebeldía campesina heredadas de la época colonial, como el cuatrerismo, hasta las modernas formas de movilización colectiva vinculadas al movimiento obrero, como el sindicalismo campesino y las huelgas agrarias, pasando por acciones de protestas que, aun teniendo un carácter tradicional, como las tomas de fundos, sirvieron como vía de reivindicación tanto de derechos ancestrales (la restitución de tierras usurpadas a las comunidades mapuches) como de los nuevos derechos laborales adquiridos (por parte de campesinos criollos).

From the Author

A New York Times–bestselling author and former Los Angeles Times reporter chronicles the marriage between a Christian woman and an ex-con that ends in murder.When Carol Montecalvo began writing to a man in prison through a program at her church, she considered it her Christian duty. But the letters soon became her lifeline, something she actually looked forward to sending and receiving. She fell in love with the man behind the letters and just before Dan was released, they wed in the prison chapel. Their marriage lasted nine years, until the fateful night when Dan stoically called 911 to report his wife’s murder.With a half-million dollar insurance policy riding on his wife’s death, and a string of adulterous affairs in his past, Dan is the most obvious suspect. But is this former felon really guilty? Or could he actually be a grieving widower, in the wrong place at the wrong time?In this powerful true crime account of the gruesome murder and sensational trial that followed, New York Times–bestselling author Karen Kingsbury weaves an emotional story that leaves readers guessing until the final, harrowing conclusion.
