The fascinating travel diaries that make up this volume are a vital complement to "The Motorcycle Diaries". These journals chronicle Guevara's trip through Latin America as his youthful idealism was developing into the political fervor that made him a revolutionary icon.
This is Che Guevara's famous last diary, found in his backpack when he was captured by the Bolivian Army in October 1967. It became an instant international best-seller. Newly revised, with a preface by Che's eldest son Camilo and extraordinary unpublished photos, this is the definitive, authorized edition of the diary, which after his death catapulted Che to iconic status throughout the world.
Director Steven Soderbergh has based his two-part epic movie "Che" (Part 1: The Argentine and Part 2: Guerrilla) on two classic diaries written by Ernesto Che Guevara: Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War (an account of the guerrilla movement led by Fidel Castro that overthrew the Batista dictatorship in 1959) and The Bolivian Diary (Che's famous, unfinished diary discovered in his backpack when he was captured and killed in Bolivia in October 1967).
The most comprehensive version of Che's writings available in English. Covering Che's writings on the Cuban revolutionary war, the first years of the revolution in Cuba and his vision for Latin America and the third world, it includes such classic essays as "Socialism and Man in Cuba" and "Two, Three, Many Vietnams". Contains several unpublished articles, essays and letters, including a letter from Che to his children shortly before his death in Bolivia in 1967 and an essay, "Strategy and Tactics for the Latin American Revolution".
Eight speeches the legendary Cuban guerrilla fighter delivered between 1959 and 1964 to such groups as the First Latin American Youth Congress, International Volunteer Work brigades, and the Ministry of Industry seminar on Youth and the Revolution. Closing the collection is a 1997 tribute by Fidel Castro.
Ernesto Che Guevara presents a revolutionary view of a different world in which human solidarity replaces imperialist aggression and exploitation. Includes Socialism and Man in Cuba, plus Che's controversial speech in Algiers in 1965.
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.
"Let's be realists, let's dream the impossible." Che Guevara's words summarize the radical vision of the four famous rebels presented in this book: Marx and Engels' "Communist Manifesto," Rosa Luxemburg's "Reform or Revolution" and Che Guevara's "Socialism and Humanity." Far from being lifeless historical documents, these manifestos for revolution will resonate with a new generation also seeking a better world. "The world described by Marx and Engels... is recognizably the world we live in 150 years later.
This Che Guevara book makes an insightful contribution to the revival of interest in Marxism. Commenting on Marx's humanism, Che writes: "Such a humane man, whose capacity for affection extended to all those suffering throughout the world."
The diaries are written by Che Guevara during his riotous motorcycle odyssey around South America at the age of twenty-three.
To check the spread of revolution in Latin America in 1961, Kennedy proposed the Alliance for Progress -- a program for free trade and development in the Americas. Che Guevara, described by "Time" magazine as "Cuba's scraggle-bearded economic czar," condemned the plan as a new strategy to subjugate the continent to U.S. interests. The introduction describes the backstage drama that unfolded when Kennedy's special envoy Richard Goodwin had a cordial encounter with Che at a late-night party. The book includes never before published material, such as Che's televised speech in which he outlines the issues posed by the Alliance for Progress.
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.
In historic speeches before the United Nations and UN bodies, Guevara and Castro address the peoples of the world, explaining why the U. S. government so fears the example set by the socialist revolution in Cuba and why Washington's effort to destroy it will fail. The time to speak the truth has come.... The government of the United States cannot be on the side of peasants because it is an ally of the landowners. It cannot be on the side of workers anywhere in the world because it is an ally of the monopolies. It cannot be on the side of colonies because it is an ally of the colonizing powers. Fidel Castro 1960 Cuba is one of the trenches of freedom in the world. We are situated only a few steps away from the U. S. imperialism, but we have shown by our actions, by our daily example, that in the present conditions of humanity the people can liberate themselves and keep themselves free. Ernesto Che Guevara 1964 In January 1959 a revolutionary government came to power in Cuba, in the more than a half century of U. S. domination of the island. Since then the government of the United States has sustained not only a "cold war" punctuated by invasion, sabotage, and assassination attempts, but also a draconian economic embargo against its Caribbean neighbor. Why this implacable hostility? Why this unremitting economic pressure that has no parallel in modern times? The reason for this policy -- and why it will fail -- are nowhere explained to the peoples of the world more clearly than in these speeches delivered over a span of twenty years before the forum of the United Nations by the most authoritative representatives of the Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro and Ernesto Che Guevara.
