A fine document describing the struggles in seven South American countries, this remains a useful tool in today's world. The Bookwatch This interesting book is more than a mere translation of Che Guevara's handbook on how to be a guerrilla fighter. Rather, the translation of Guevara's historic work, Guerrilla Warfare, and two of his later pieces, 'Guerrilla Warfare: A Method" and "Message to the Tricontinental," are nestled between an informative and well-developed introduction and essays describing the struggles in seven South American countries whose guerrilla movements were inspired by Che Guevara's writings and beliefs... This work is quite useful for anyone who desires to understand the struggles occurring around the world today. Journal Of International Law and Politics Aside from Che's own compelling rhetoric, the case histories demonstrate Che's influence and the application of his analysis in very specific terms... Those who teach courses on the Third World or on the history of Latin America since World War II should welcome this volume. Hispanic American Historical Review Che's insights are just as alive today as they were when he first wrote them down in 1960. Latin America In Books For teaching purposes this volume is extremely worthwhile. The evaluation of guerrilla experiences is on the whole judicious, the prose highly readable, and the package coherent. Journal of Latin American Studies
