Che Guevara was born in Argentina and traveled throughout Latin America before joining the Cuban revolutionary movement that toppled the Batista dictatorship in 1959. Although best known for his writings on guerrilla warfare, this book shows Che as a profound thinker with a radical world view that still strikes a chord with young rebels in every country today.
