Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life
Grove Press, 1997 - 814 pages
"Superb ... Mr. Anderson does a masterly job in evoking Che's complex character, in separating the man from the myth and in describing the critical role Che played in one of the darkest periods of the cold war". -- The New York Times Book Review
The Philadelphia Inquirer called Che Guevara "the best treatment of its subject to date", and the Denver Post wrote, "It is Anderson's careful research that will define Guevara for the future". Acclaimed around the world and a national best-seller, this is the definitive work on Che Guevara, the dashing rebel whose epic dream was to end poverty and injustice in Latin America and the developing world through armed revolution.
Jon Lee Anderson's biography traces Che's extraordinary life, from his comfortable Argentine upbringing to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution, from the halls of power in Castro's government to his failed campaign in the Congo and his assassination in the Bolivian jungle. Combining unprecedented access to the personal archives maintained by Guevara's widow, carefully guarded Cuban government documents, and extensive interviews with both Che's comrades and the CIA men and Bolivian officers who hunted him down, Che Guevara illuminates as never before this mythic figure who embodied the greatest moment of revolutionary communism as a force in history.
"Excellent ... admirably honest and staggeringly researched ... it is unlikely that after Anderson's exhaustive contribution, much more will be learned about Guevara". -- Los Angeles Times
"An enduring achievement. Other biographies are in the works, but it is hard to imagine that any will match the volume and detail of the research here.... Guevara's victories andfailures, equally spectacular, are part of our common history.... Che lives, not only in this book but in the world". -- The Boston Globe
