Subtitle: A Revolutionary Life
This acclaimed US bestseller chronicles the life of the dashing rebel from Argentina, Che Guevara, whose epic dream was to end poverty and injustice in the third world through armed revolution.
From his comfortable Argentine upbringing to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution, from the halls of power in Castro’s government to his failures in the Congo and ultimately his assassination in the Bolivian jungle.
Through exclusive access to previously unavailable personal archives, government documents and rare interviews, the author reveals many aspects of Che’s life long cloaked in secrecy and intrigue.
AudioFile: “Excellent....admirably honest staggeringly researched....It is unlikely that after Anderson’s exhaustive contribution, much more will be learned about Guevara.”
Los Angeles Times: “An enduring achievement. It is hard to imagine that any will match the volume and detail of the research here.... victories and failures, equally spectacular, are part of our common history….Che lives, not only in this book, but in the world.”
New York Times Book Review: “A sweeping biography of the Latino revolutionary and pop-culture hero....Anderson paints a portrait of Guevara as both hero and fanatic....Students of Che’s life and deeds need look no farther than Anderson’s volume.”
Boston Globe: “ exceptional and exciting biography....Anderson’s up-close look, with beauty marks and tragic flaws so effortlessly rendered, brings the reader face to face with a man whose ’unshakable faith in his beliefs was made more powerful by his unusual combination of romantic passion and a coldly analytical mind.’...an invaluable addition to the literature of American revolutionaries.”
