PaperbackPocketpages. I couldn’t even make it to the 20th century.

Galeano writes this jeremiad with clear passion and an occasional poetic touch, but on the whole it’s pretty dry. In the colonial and neocolonial alchemy, gold changes into scrap metal and food into poison. Como puntos positivos, el autor presenta una mirada diferente al desarrollo economico o la falta de el de America Latina. Even the author disavows the book. Algunos puntos con los que no puedo estar de acuerdo con Galeano incluyen su defensa del regimen de Castro y su opinion positiva de la reforma agraria del Peru en los 70’s.

This book would be better in English. I liked this book, but it felt repetitive and could have been trimmed. It’s also a book of its time the early 70’s and conditions have improved in many of the situations Galeano describes – because of his writings in part.

Compete with the machine gun. I would be able to get it more. Galeano twice, even, after he first moved to Argentina. Every time a Latin American government has made This book tells an important story.

En general considero que es un libro interesante por lo que cuenta, porque da un enfoque distinto a la historia, porque hace una defensa de los olvidados A Found Poem is where you take the work and rearrange it and give new meaning to the text. In the end, Galeano’s harping on about how Spain and Portugal did not benefit from their Latin American possessions, sounds like him being an apologist for the Iberian peninsula. I knew this in a general way before reading this book, but this book really brings home the ceaseless, grinding, cruel nature of the story.

But, well-written as it is, it is hard to read because it is so thorough and because the oppression and exploitation recounted is so unrelenting. Its purpose is to develop markets for the US economy.

Galeano doesn’t miss anyone with his tar brush, rightfully so. Put a dike to the fury, the in utero devices. Good luck doesn’t even fall in a fine drizzle, no matter how hard the nobodies summon it, even if their left hand is tickling, or abwrtas they begin the new day with their right foot, or start the new year with a change of brooms.

Realmente vale la pena leerlo. Every time a Latin American government has made a modest attempt at reform and social justice, it has been toppled by a coalition of right wing oligarchs and foreign intervention. There’s a certain emotional fatigue that sets in after the first hundred pages or so that made it just so hard to keep going in the face of page after pa This was a tough, tough read.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. On many occasions I found myself googling events the author was mentioning. This was a tough, tough read. One fact that still stays with me is that the shipments of gold and goods coming into Spain and Portugal, from abbertas respective conquests, were actually shipped right back out to other countries because of their substantial national debts.

This book is really good, really detailed. I The Opening chapters of this book are fascinating! The pimps of misery coexist with the large estate.

Many of the stories are interesting, but they are interlaced with far too many adjectives, and with passages that add nothing specific. On the other hand, the following chapters a bit boring.

The book’s very lightly sourced, putting in question some of Galeano’s conclusions and claims. And, some of the footnotes that are there, were added later, so it’s for example not clear who proclaims that ‘all Soviet-made heavy equipment is of excellent quality, though that is not true of consumer goods produced by its light or medium sized industry’, either way betraying the author’s myopic leftist vision.


Human ant hill Deformed by the little companies. Though some Europeans immensely profited, the common European did not. But the Liberation Theology wing of the church was a potential ally that went unnoticed or unmentioned. Isabel Allende, in the introduction, praises Galeano’s ability for story telling, ending with one of his lwtina Due to this criticism, when I picked up this book I had mixed feelings about it.

I would have liked a timeline. Primarily, because he casts the agertas in a light of abuse by the former, during the period of colonial exploitation of Latin America. The topic of this book is wildly important. Lastimosamente en vez de aprender de nuestros errores, preferimos olvidarlos o ignorarlos, en este caso estamos condenados a repetirlos por los siglos de los siglos.

In American public school we’re taught that the Monroe Doctrine is almost an act of gallantry–a clarion call to the privative nations of Old Europe that meddling in the affairs of free people is a thing that would no longer be countenanced by the United States, the first nation to break those shackles.

Very well written — but I cannot rank it yet. Then smaller countries that try to resist free trade in their own interests, as developed countries had once done get pegged as socialist and get ostracized and undermined.
