              The last diary of revolutionary Che Guevara with entries up until two days before his murder. Here is Ernesto Che Guevara's account of the 1966-67 guerrilla struggle in Bolivia. A day-by-day chronicle of the campaign led by one of the central leaders of the Cuban revolution to fo...rge a revolutionary movement of workers and peasants capable of contending for power in Bolivia and providing an example for all Latin America. --Midwest Book Review Thanks to Che's invariable habit of noting the main events of each day, we have rigorously exact, priceless and detailed information on the heroic final months of his life in Bolivia. --Fidel Castro I turned 39 today and am inevitably approaching the age when I need to consider my future as a guerrilla. But for now, I am still in one piece. --Che Guevara, June 14, 1967 This new edition of Che Guevara's diary of the last year of his life describes Che's efforts to launch a guerrilla insurrection against the military government of Bolivia. It was found in his backpack when he was captured by the Bolivian Army in October 1967. Newly revised, it includes Fidel Castro's A Necessary Introduction, exposing the lies of an earlier, pre-emptive edition prepared by the C.I.A. to discredit Che and the Bolivian expedition, as well as the Cuban Revolution itself. The Bolivian Diary reveals an older, more time-tested, and health-compromised Che than either the exuberant The Motorcycle Diaries or the mature and implacable Congo Diary. There is rich irony here as he recounts the daily challenges faced by his small guerrilla band, the pronouncements of the military government, and the actions of the large military force attacking them. The last entry describes the day before Che's capture, two days before his murder.

              A panoramic exploration of Cuba's extraordinary art world, including exclusive interviews with thirty-five of the island's most influential artists and photography by Camillo Guevara. Retracing the vibrant history of Cuban art from 1900 onwards, this book provides an overview of ...Cuban cultural and artistic development across a number of mediums, including painting, drawing, sculpture, installations, and the visual arts. Together, long-time friends and authors Gilbert Brownstone and Camillo Guevara visited and interviewed Cuba's thirty-five most important and internationally acclaimed visual artists, who talk openly about their education, influences, and the role of art in Cuba. Art has always been at the heart of the Cuban cultural identity, and the island is home to major artists across the spectrum of artistic disciplines. Yet while culture thrived both in the provinces and in Havana throughout the twentieth century, it was with the advent of the revolution and rise of Fidel Castro that free education and widespread access to the arts became top priorities, giving the underprivileged access to the artistic realm that had once been a domain of the elite. Both an invitation into the world of the dynamic Caribbean island and an overview of the Cuban artistic heritage, this book is not to be missed by anyone with an interest in contemporary art and culture.

              He llegado a los 39 y se acerca inexorablemente una edad que da que pensar sobre mi futuro guerrillero; por ahora estoy 'entero'. --Che Guevara, 14 de junio de 1967 Esta nueva edicion del diario del Che Guevara del ultimo ano de su vida describe los esfuerzos que hace el Che para... lanzar una rebelion guerrillera en contra del gobierno militar de Bolivia. Fue encontrado en su mochila cuando el ejercito boliviano lo capturo en octubre de 1967. Nuevamente revisado, ahora incluye Una introduccion necesaria de Fidel Castro, revelando las mentiras de una edicion anterior, preventiva preparada por la C.I.A. para descreditar al Che y la expedicion boliviana, asi como tambien la Revolucion Cubana en si. El Diario del Che en Bolivia revela a un Che mas viejo, puesto a prueba por el tiempo, y con su salud deteriorada, diferente que el de Diarios de Motocicleta o el maduro e implacable de Pasajes de la Guerra Revolucionaria: Congo. Se concreta una gran ironia a medida que relata los desafios enfrentados a diario por su pequena tropa guerrillera, los pronunciamientos del gobierno militar, y las acciones de la gran fuerza militar atacandolos. La ultima entrada describe el dia en que el Che es capturado, dos dias antes de su muerte.
