More About This Title Che Guevara


There is certainly no shortage of biographies written about Che Guevara—ever since his death in 1967, a few more are published each year in countries across the world. Why the lingering interest in someone who died almost half a century ago, in an obscure corner of an impoverished region of South America? How can this nearly mythical figure survive when the ideals he lived and died for seemed to die with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the USSR in 1989? This book presents answers to these questions and proposes a new vision of one of contemporary history’s most fascinating figures.
