The most comprehensive selection of Guevara's writings available in English.
The publication of this anthology coincides with the 30th anniversary of Guevara's death in Bolivia in October 1967 as he led an ill-fated guerrilla mission. As the most authoritative collection to date of the work of Guevara, the book is an unprecedented source of primary material on Cuba and Latin America in the 1950s and 1960s. This wide-ranging selection of Guevara's speeches and writings, includes four sections: the Cuban guerrilla war (1956-58); the years in government in Cuba (1959-65); Guevara's views on the major international issues of the time, including documents written from Africa and Latin America after his departure from Cuba in 1965; and a selection of letters written by Guevara, including his farewell letters to Fidel Castro and his children and family.
