Product Description

Review

This Book was written By Galeano in 90 days ( moolighting) after his regular work in 1970. Yet it is the most enlightening account of 500 years of ransaking of a continent along with Genocide. This one and John Dos Pasos's USA, constitute the masterpieces in meta-historic literature. It is the story of spanish, british and american colonialism. -- Zorroeast "Amazon reviews" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
The description of the item says 'Las venas abiertas de América Latina' by Eduardo Galeano, when in fact it is a critical work on the former book, written by Libardo Torres. This is not specified on the website. There are two different books and I got the wrong one.
I've written to the seller three times to request a refund, but they wouldn't even answer my emails. NOT RECOMMENDED.

The Open Veins of Latin America is an interesting interpretation of the thinking behind what motivates current Latin American politics.
A must for all students of Latin American politics and economic history. Whilst not always agreeing to the authors interpretation of events it is still a must read to gain a wider understanding of the background on the future developments of a still volatile major continent of the world.

espectacular resumen de la tragica historia de despojo de Amèrica Latina. Ayuda a entender de dònde proviene el actual estado socioeconòmico de la regiòn. El modo de describir se aleja del rigor del historiador y se acerca al del narrador, como si fuera un reportero que describe los hechos como si fuera testigo ocular. Lo recomiendo seguramente a quienes desean un punto de vista diferente de lo oficial.

Lleno de clichés y también de verdades. Bueno para entender ciertas cosas, no tan bueno para proponer soluciones ni para salir de la situación en que está Am Lat. Continúa la cultura de culpar a los demás (no que la culpa no exista, pero hay que superarla).

Amazing look into the history of how the European countries fought and conquered LatinAmetica in order to keep an entire continent in slavitude, financial dependency and force feed them a false history, religion and a European way of life. A book that is still banned in South America but everyone has read it.
