            FitzRoy - Beyond the Rumours: Tenth Governor of New South Wales, First Governor-General of Australia (Hardback)

            Was Governor FitzRoy the man popular history would have us believe? Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy's tenure as Governor of New South Wales and Governor-General of Australia between 1846 and 1855 was plagued by rumour. Mention FitzRoy and he is either not remembered at all, remember...ed as the Governor who caused his wife's death or as a shameless womaniser. Are these damning comments justified? It was the time of Wentworth, Parkes and Lang, giant political figures in New South Wales' early history. FitzRoy's administration oversaw matters such as settlement of the contentious crown land issue and squatters' rights, discovery of gold, education and introduction of the railway. A man of the British Empire, he served firstly his King, then a young Queen Victoria as the Crown's Vice Regal representative at Prince Edward island, the Leeward Islands and finally, New South Wales. This commissioned biography portrays FitzRoy in a light not previously considered, from a personal, family oriented aspect, stretching from childhood to the battlefields of Waterloo. Going beyond the rumours set in motion in 1847, it reveals a worldly diplomat, a Governor who encouraged those around him to act on their beliefs.

            In compelling detail, two leading US civil rights attorneys recount the extraordinary life and deliberate killing of the world s most storied revolutionary: Ernesto Che Guevara. Michael Ratner and Michael Steven Smith survey the extraordinary trajectory of Che s career from an ea...rly politicization recounted in The Motorcycle Diaries, through meetings with his companero Fidel Castro in Mexico, his vital role in the Cuban revolution, and his expeditions abroad to Africa and Latin America. But their focus is on Che s final days in Bolivia where, after months of struggle to spread the revolution that had begun in Havana, Che is wounded, captured and, soon after, executed. Bound and helpless, Che s last words to his killer, a soldier in the Bolivian Army, were: Remember, you are killing a man. Referencing internal US government documentation, much of it never before published, Ratner and Smith bring their forensic skills as attorneys to analyze the evidence and present an irrefutable case that the CIA not only knew of and approved the execution, but was instrumental in making it happen. Cables from the agency disavowing any US role in the murder were merely attempts to provide plausible deniability for the Johnson administration.The spirit of Che Guevara, as an icon and an inspiration, is as vibrant today as it ever was. Protestors around the world continue to use his image. For anyone drawn to his remarkable life and its violent, unlawful end, How the CIA Killed Che will engage, anger, and educate.
