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.

I've written to the seller three times to request a refund, but they wouldn't even answer my emails. NOT RECOMMENDED.
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.
Colonial history and development of America Latina
Galeano shows once again his writing skills.

Incredible book, a must read. Need to think about the time when it was written (late sixties in southamerica) to fully understand the writer's point of view.Published on 2 Jun. 2010 by Mr. Oscar N. Mariani Elola
