Although I read this book in the original French, I believe my revue in English is also worthy of consideration. The text is heartfelt and in step with the globalization of capitalism's cataclysmic consequences for the working classes of our world and the degradation of the planetary environment to further the rapacity of the tiny group of super-wealthy and their minions at the top of the economic order.

It offers a simple approach to what needs to be done in language that everyone can understand. I urge those interested in solutions to big problems to cast an eye on this well written book.

Besancenot and Lowy have written a very important book. It is often hard to untangle a man from his myth, especially when dealing with one who has become an icon of revolution and revolt. I have studied Che Guevara for many years and I knew this book was off to a good start when I read the first line of the second paragraph of the Introduction, "Ernesto "Che" Guevara was not a saint, a superman, or an infallible leader: he was a man like others. He had strengths and weaknesses, insights and blind spots; he made mistakes and blunders. But he had a rare quality among political actors: a consistency between his words and acts, his ideas and practice, his thought and action." In many ways, this is a great introduction to Che. It explains his general ideas and makes clear why he has become an icon of revolutionary struggle. It distinguishes his own ideas from those of monsters like Stalin and other simplistic arguments against leftists ideals and ideas. It illustrates that he was an internationalist that clearly understood the power and threat of imperialism and many of his warnings we see have come to fruition around the world today. However, most importantly, this book clearly illustrates the revolutionary struggle against imperialism and capitalist monopoly that degrades humanity the world over and why Che has become the symbol of said struggle. This book removes him from the myth and shows the reader a man with ideas and a yearning to liberate humanity from the manipulation and dehumanizing economic system that currently holds much of the world hostage. There is a beautiful struggle that continues through the past up to the present - through Jose Marti to the Zapatistas to the Occupy Wall-street and WTO protest movements. This book will fill the reader with hope and make him/her fell less isolated and alienated - that is the book's greatest gift.
