Che Guevara was the legendary Latin American guerrilla fighter who joined the Cuban revolutionary movement that toppled the Batista dictatorship. He played a leading role in the early years of the Cuban Revolution and made an extraordinary and original contribution to Marxist theory. He died at the hands of CIA assassins in Bolivia in 1967. Camilo Guevara (preface) is 42 years old and is Che Guevara's and Aleida March's eldest son. He has written an insightful preface for this new edition.
