||Exhibiting remarkable insight into the human condition, Latin American author Isabel Allende fills this program with the same passion and intelligence found in her many novels. Allende confronts issues that trouble not only South and Central America but the planet as a whole, using her poetic voice to articulate compelling views on immigration, religious fundamentalism, the exploitation of women and children, and the resilience of feminism. The author of The House of the Spirits and Of Love and Shadows also discusses how Chilean democracy, made vulnerable by a kind of national amnesia, succumbed to Augusto Pinochet's military dictatorship.
