Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new edition coincides with the 40th anniversary of Che Guevara's death and the 80th anniversary of his birth. Updated with a new epilogue.

Richard L. Harris includes in this updated edition of Death of a Revolutionary new revelations about Che's revolutionary legacy and discusses the renewed interest in his revolutionary ideas stimulated by the election of leftist governments throughout Latin America. In response to this growing resurgence of interest in Che's life, a feature film directed by Steven Soderbergh, and several documentaries are scheduled for release in late 2007 and 2008. To commemorate Che's life and death many international conferences and events will be held and his iconic image will be seen repeatedly in the mass media. This new edition of Death of a Revolutionary—hailed as "well written, provocative, and fair minded" by Choice—contains the latest information on this charismatic and legendary figure and reveals why he is a hero for millions of people around the world.
