The publication of this title by Ocean Sur in Spanish in July 2011 provoked considerable international attention (including CNN). This never-before-published diary (comprising a dozen small notebooks) Ernesto Che Guevara kept during the guerrilla war in Cuba when he joined the struggle to overthrow the Batista dictatorship that led to the 1959 revolution has now been meticulously transcribed by his widow, Aleida March.Why did it take over fifty years for this diary to be published? Maybe because of some caustic comments Che makes in his usual brutally frank style. Maybe it was felt appropriate to wait until Fidel Castro had produced his own memoirs (now published by Ocean Press as The Strategic Victory).In launching the book in Havana in July 2011, editor Maria del Carmen Ariet marked that it was "never clear whether or not Che wanted these diaries published" as he had reworked several pieces into his famous Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War, on which Steven Soderbergh based part one of his epic movie Che, starring Benicio Del Toro.Nevertheless, all Che's diaries-from his early Motorcycle Diaries and its sequel, Latin America Diaries, through to his last diary from Bolivia-are extraordinary examples of his literary gift and his political incisiveness, in terms of his personal reflections, his criticisms and self-criticism, and his observations about others and events.Other features of this new book are fifty-eight unpublished photos from Che's personal archive and unpublished letters (including correspondence between Che and Fidel), an index, and extensive glossary.

A bestselling Che classic for decades, this is Che Guevara's own incisive analysis of the Cuban revolution-a text studied by his admirers and adversaries alike.

In this, the most famous book produced by the Cuban Revolution, a charismatic guerrilla leader presents his manifesto on asymmetrical warfare. The Argentine-born Marxist revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara (1928-1967) establishes the principles of waging a popular rebellion, outlining his theories on insurrection and discussing their application in Cuba and elsewhere. Guevara's essays remain remarkably relevant to the twenty-first century, and his example of dedication, commitment, and self-sacrifice continues to inspire freedom fighters around the world.
Featuring a new preface by his guerrilla compañero in Bolivia and Africa, Harry "Pombo" Villegas, this new, expanded and revised edition of a bestselling Che Guevara classic reviews a crucial period of Latin American political history.

Síntesis dramática de una época que vio en la Revolución el camino hacia una sociedad más justa, la figura de Ernesto Che Guevara reaparece hoy en todo el mundo con la dimensión de un mito, de un ideal, de un icono. Tal vez porque los signos de estos días son tan distintos de aquellos en que vivió y murió el Che, su actualidad parece carecer de contenidos y emerger fuera de toda referencia histórica. Esta ciudadosa selección de escritos, de conferencias, de cartas y del diario de sus últimos días en Bolivia intenta rescatar todos los aspectos -el guerrillero, el político, el economista, el humano- de un protagonista fundamental del convulsionado siglo XX.
