Publisher Comments:

Cuando llegooacute; el momento en que fue muerto en las selvas de Bolivia, donde su cuerpo fue exhibido como un Cristo destronado, Ernesto "Che Guevara se habiiacute;a convertido ensinooacute;nimo de revolucion en todas partes desde Cuba hasta los terrenos universitarios de los Estados Unidos. Esta biografiiacute;a extraordinaria por uno de los maaacute;s prominentes analistaspoliiacute;ticos de Latinoameeacute;rica revela la leyenda del Che Guevara para mostrar el carismaaacute;tico e inquieto hombre detras de ella.

Tomando de los archivos de tres continentesy de entrevistas con la familia y asociados de Guevara, Jorge Castanntilde;eda sigue al Che desde su ninez en la clase media argentina hasta los anos de peregrinaje que lo hicieron un revolucionariodedicado. Castanntilde;eda examina las complejas relaciones entre Guevara y Fidel Castro, quien lo hizo su mano derecha auuacute;n cuando el Che se convirtiooacute; en la conciencia poliiacute;tica de Fidel. YCastanntilde;eda analiza las fallas de caraaacute;cter que forzaron al Che a irse de Cuba y dar sus energias y, finalmente, su vida a aventuras quijotescas en el Congo y Bolivia. Una obra maestra de erudiciooacute;ny simpatiiacute;a literaria, Companntilde;ero es el retrato definitivo de una figura que continua fascinando e inspirando a gentes del mundo entero.
