This book sets out to narrate the contributions to and influence on the history of Chile that British visitors and immigrants have had, not as bystanders but as key players, starting in 1554 with the English Queen 'Bloody Mary' becoming Queen of Chile, and ending with the decline of British influence following the Second World War.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[Edmundson] has written such an excellent book which ought to appeal to anyone with an interest in Chile. Well-researched and concise, it is an appetite-warming guide for further reading and should be recommended to newcomers planning to spend much time in the country.' - Chilean News, (the Bulletin of the Anglo-Chilean Society in London), Year 66, No. 376, 10-11. April 2010

'I congratulate William Edmundson on bringing this important, but largely forgotten, part of Chilean history to the general public.' - Victor C. Hawkins, Chairman, British Commonwealth Society, Chile

'As the modern-day visitor can readily confirm, Chilean attitudes toward Britain are warm and admiring. William Edmundson's book is a well-documented account of how those ties were formed, starting even before the war of independence was won. He has researched extensively the motives industrial, commercial, and scientific, among others that brought adventurous and enterprising Britons to Chile, many adopting the country as their new homeland. This is an intriguing, informative book, relevant to the times, and worthy of inclusion in any Foreign Studies curriculum.' - Duncan Campbell, Site Administrator, The British Presence in Southern Patagonia

"This book provides a lot of useful reference material for anyone with Chilean ancestors or whose ancestors pursued careers there." - Jessie Denholm, The Scottish Genealogist

'A very well researched book, really entertaining reading, explaining hundreds of years of interaction between these two countries and the traces seen today in Chile' Luis Mansilla Miranda, customer review on Amazon.com.
