This is a good book if you want to know about Che's Marxists theories and if you want to know some of his views on the world during his time. But this book (though it is good) only scratches the surface a good portion of these speeches and essays have been published in many other books what the editor should've done was published parts of Che's critique of the Soviet Union that Castro has hidden away,printed parts of his congo book and sections from the Bolivian Diary, and more sections from the nine volume Che Guevara writing and speeches then this book would worthy of the title Che Guevara Reader

Che Guevara has been so etched into the public consciousness as an icon of revolution, rebellion and guerrilla warfare that it is easy for many to forget about the more intellectual aspects of the man. The "Che Guevara Reader" is the perfect tool to really study and learn the ideas behind Guevara's quest for Latin American unity against imperialism, poverty and racism. The depth of thought and analysis will be stunning to many, there are passages where Guevara writes and expresses at a level worthy of Noam Chomsky. Here we see that the man was no joke, there were very real philosophies behind his drive for revolution. The book covers Che's writings from the time of the Cuban guerrilla war against the U.S.-backed Batista dictatorship to his various speeched as Cuba's ambassador to the world. Among the most powerful pieces are his speeched at such forums as the United Nations, where Guevara gives an angry, heartfelt summary of the suffering felt in the Americas at the hands of imperialism and how the people will rise. When one looks at current events in Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador, there is more resonance to a passage where Che states, "our example will bear fruit." Some of the most fascinating passages in the book deal with the concepts behind social progress and unity, where Che stresses the need to work as one and not give in to shallow materialism. Che especially focuses on the need for education to build a stronger system and build social consciousness. Che and Fidel bashers will be infuriated by sections where Guevara clearly states that not ALL aspects of Marxism work for a society, destroying the myth of Che being a radical dogmatic Communist.Read more ›

Excellent book, well written every From the struggle and this mans opinions and turned into a guide yet so much more. This man Che Guevara is truly, a legend do not be fooled by western propaganda this man was a hero and the proof is out there if you look for it. This is a great place to start The only people to have a opinion regardless( the Cuban people not the Americanized Cubans out there that have been mostly lied too Sadly buy our government) the Cubans have a a right to voice their opinion regardless) everyone else especially certain country's that tried to take advantage of this great country. Certain other country's t try to take advantage of the Cuban people. the ones who wanted to take advantage of this wonderful country and change the history around.Why to take over their fruit, sugar, and most important oil among other things.

This collection of Guevara's writings expresses the deep thoughts that pervaded in the deep crevices of his mind. This book has a wonderful, and simple chronology to start off, from his birth, to the Cuban Revolution, and to his untimely murder. Also bound in this book is several speeches he made, along with letters that he wrote, including the farewell letter to his good comrade: Fidel Castro. This book lets you explore the complexities of Che Guevara ideals, and manifests them in the best way possible.

this book is a great collection of various writings and speeches by ernesto che guevara. it contains some entries in his diary of the cuban revolution, speeches he gave internationally and in cuba, and letters he wrote to people close to him. it's an interesting collection of his stuff, which is actually pretty hard to get a hold of. so if you see this book, and your interested in che, grab it, because i really had to look around for this one.

I was hoping for more economic and organizational theory, and it is more history or historiography which is less intellectually challenging.
