• This paper analyzes the perception of the Eastern European revolutions of 1989
    through the Chilean press, in the context of the process of political change that Chile was experiencing
    at that time. The research relies on the critical review of various contemporary media:
    newspapers, magazines, and written testimonials, which allow us to approximate the impact produced
    in the public sphere, political actors and the media. The 1989 revolutions led to the fall of
    communist governments in various European countries, which consequently had repercussions on
    the end of the Cold War and the Soviet Union.
