Reviews

"A superbly written, excellently translated, and powerfully persuasive expose which all students of Latin American and U.S. history must read."--CHOICE, American Library Association
"This book is a monument in our Latin American history. It allows us to learn history, and we have to build on this history."--Hugo Chรกvez, as reported by the BBC
"I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Galeano's vision is unswerving, surgical and yet immensely generous and humane. This book, written more than thirty years ago, contains profound lessons for contemporary India. Eduardo Galeano ought to be a household name in this country."--Arundhati Roy
"A dazzling barrage of words and ideas."--History
"To publish Eduardo Galeano is to publish the enemy: the enemy of lies, indifference, above all of forgetfulness. Thanks to him our crimes will be remembered. His tenderness is devastating, his truthfulness, furious."--John Berger
"Well written and passionately stated, this is an intellectually honest and valuable study."--Library Journal
