...as an equal.Too many books are out there 'interpreting' Che Guevara ; most often by academics who fear and hate revolution.Here Che speaks for himself : how the Cuban revolution discovered the 'road of Marx' by breaking out of the Yanqui Empire fror good; how 'lone wolf' individualists do NOT make social revolutions; how to be a revolutionary MD or anything else 'first a revolution must be made'; the need for a disciplined revolutionary youth organization;how to learn from fighting workers and peasants while fighting alongside them;internationalism as a necessity and a duty; the fight against postrevolution bureaucracy.These ideas as guide to action are how revolutionary Cuba has survived and will survive.Young and not-so-young fighters REQUIRE THIS BOOK as 'globalized capitalism' tears our lives apart.To fight back 'intelligently, as Malcolm X would say.Read 'Cuba And The Coming American Revolution' by Jack Barnes side by side with this gem of a book.Was this review helpful?

Ché Guevara Speaks to Youth The titles of these speeches are enough to tell why this should be every rebel's handbook. As a physician, he explained that being good people is not enough to become a revolutionary doctor - one must make a revolution. Once that revolution had won through, he explained the tasks communist youth face. This advice may be taken well to heart, because there are too many people who try to be good persons, and leave it at that. Read el Ché in his own voice, so you can make up your own mind. This is what Pathfinder Press stands out for: offering space for revolutionaries to speak for themselves. And well earned is this addition to the '...Speaks' 'series.' Historically, this individual's intellectual development may be traced in this volume. The reader can see how the ideas gelled into what was to become the first experiment in the socialism of solidarity, which was retaken in 1985, just in time before the USSR began to quaver.Was this review helpful?
