Format: Paperback
This book is for anyone immersed in the human condition, waging a war internally and silently stuggling externally. Galeano's collection of thoughts and essays and stories stirs the emotions of the reader and forces them to consider the entirety of the Latin American canon of literature as a formidable one. It encompasses genres such as autobiography, biography, testimony, prose, and short story. This is poetry of the soul for the soul, and shouldn't be limited to those obscure literature classes dealing with oppression

Format: Paperback
The personal testimony of one of Latin America's foremost contemporary political writers, Eduardo Galeano's Days And Nights Of Love And War blends memoir journaling with an eloquent history to record the lives and struggles of the Latin American people under two decades of unimaginable violence and extreme repression. Galeano combines straight-forward reportage with personal vignettes, interviews, travelogues, and folklore with an impressive and engaging emotional enrichment that includes anger, irony, sadness, and humor. Days And Nights Of Love And War is very highly recommended for students of late 20th century Latin American political history and culture.

is as Galeano define "Days and Nights of Love and War". The author open the memory box and let escape the pain and the love, the sadness and the joy. That is not only his box, it's my box too, all latinoamericans' box. So, when we open it we live.

Format: Paperback
Days and Nights of Love and War might be the most moving and inspirational book I've ever read. It weaves together organically like many memories: without chronology, in snippets that each form the tiny brushstrokes of a life. Struggle for a better world can never exist only in antagonism. In fighting the dominant system, one must remember and care for the tiny and profound details that make the world a place worth fighting for. Galeano knows this intimately. Between scenes of bloody state repression he gracefully intertwines stories of lovers, children, lore, and friendship. It is in this juxtaposition that life gains potency and motion. It is precisely why (a la Che Guevara) because of deep love, one fights.

Eduardo Galeano's 'Days and Nights of Love and War' moved me in a way few books have the power to do. It is an extensive journey through the horrifying realities of Latin America during the 1970s. There is a seamless integration of the personal and the wider political landscape, with Galeano's journalistic accuracy interwoven with intensely beautiful, poetic and descriptive prose. The minute details of everyday lives merge with the brutal and overarching context of their existence, in which obliteration is swift, easy and abrupt. A phenomenal book.
