Book: Pinochet the Politics of Torture - by who??[edit]

Amazon has the author of the book "Pinochet: the Politics of Torture" as William O'Shaughnessy when anyone can see on the cover of the book in listings that it is Hugh not William, and all other sources have Hugh O'Shaughnessy. I happen to know the author anyway. Careless Amazon listing. 86.24.166.10 (talk) 22:50, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Redundancy in Opening Paragraph[edit]

In the opening sentence of the paragraph, he is described as a "Chilean general, politician and the dictator of Chile". The last sentence of the paragraph states "his rule of Chile was a dictatorship". To be clear, I am NOT disputing that Pinochet's rule of Chile was dictatorial, by any means. I am only wondering others would agree that the opening paragraph could be improved by either using a different word instead of "dictator" in the first sentence (perhaps a more specific description "military ruler" was used in older versions of this article). An alternative solution could be to eliminate the last paragraph altogether, though I would rather not, since it is short, concise, sourced, and cannot be misinterpreted. 98.109.89.134 (talk) 02:06, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

I've addressed the redundancy. If folks have issues with the specific phrasing, they should raise those here. Vanamonde (talk) 07:51, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
