Biography: Political

He became a myth in his own lifetime and an international martyr-figure upon his death; he was a revolutionary fighter, a military strategist, a social philosopher, an economist, a medical doctor, and a friend and confidant of Fidel Castro. Che Guevara’s dream was an epic one – to unite Latin America and the rest of the developing world through armed revolution, and to end once and for all the poverty, injustice and petty nationalisms that had bled it for centuries. In the end Che failed in his quest but he is recognized as that one-in-a-million personality who just might have pulled it off.

Jon Lee Anderson has been given unprecedented access to the Cuban Government’s archives and has had total co-operation from Che’s widow, Aleida March, who has never previously spoken for publication about her late husband. He has obtained hitherto unpublished documents, including several of Che’s personal diaries and, in the course of his research, broke open a twenty-eight-year-old mystery – the whereabouts of Che’s body in Bolivia. There is no doubt that this monumental work will stand as the definitive portrait of one of the twentieth century’s most fascinating, yet largely unexplored, historical figures.
