Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: December 2008
Duration: 36 hours 50 minutes
This acclaimed national best-seller is the definitive work on Che Guevara, the dashing rebel whose epic dream was to end poverty and injustice in Latin America and the developing world through armed revolution. Anderson traces Che's extraordinary life from his comfortable Argentine upbringing to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution, from the halls of power in Castro's government to his failed campaign in the Congo and his assassination in the Bolivian jungle. With unprecedented access to personal archives, government documents, and rare interviews, Anderson reveals many details of Che's life that have long been cloaked in secrecy and intrigue. Meticulously researched and full of exclusive information, Che Guevara illuminates as never before this mythic figure who embodied the high-water mark of revolutionary Communism as a force in history.
"Superb...Anderson does a masterly job in evoking Che's complex character, in separating the man from the myth...[The book] is especially interesting for being written from a largely Cuban perspective."-New York Times Book Review
