More About This Textbook


A firsthand account of the military campaigns and political events that culminated in the January 1959 popular insurrection that overthrew the U.S.-backed dictatorship in Cuba. With clarity and humor, Guevara describes his own political education. He explains how the struggle transformed the men and women of the Rebel Army and July 26 Movement led by Fidel Castro. And how these combatants forged a political leadership capable of guiding millions of workers and peasants to open the socialist revolution in the Americas. Guevara's Episodes appears here complete for the first time in English.

"Corrects hundreds of little errors that have crept into the Che Guevara essays; it also fully identifies figures alluded to or previously identified only by noms de guerre. Photographs, a glossary of terms, an order-of-battle chart, and rosters of names with minibiographies make this work mandatory reading for students of the Cuban Revolution."-Hispanic American Historical Review

"A convenient addition to the literature on the Cuban revolution. . . . [T]his edition has some previously unpublished material, a very good introduction, a chronology of events, a series of excellent photographs, and a detailed list of individuals mentioned in the Guevara writings."-Choice

"Episodes is interesting as both a historical document and a profile of the personalities involved in Revolutionary Cuba. It shows us how the men and women of the Rebel army were transformed by their experiences and how the rebels forged a political leadership capable of guiding the first socialist revolution in the Americas."-Committee on U.S.-Latin American Relations

"Beautifully edited and illustrated. . . . "-Russell W.Ramsey, Troy State University, in Hispanic American Historical Review

    Superb edition of Che's diaries

    Why does Cuba provide doctors for underdeveloped countries throughout the world¿something which far richer countries are unwilling to do? This book by Che shows how Fidel Castro¿s revolutionary movement has always taken the moral high ground, going back their triumph over hated dictator Batista. Che documents the reasons for this in these articles, many of which were written as the fighting was going on. He discusses the revolutionaries¿ respect for the peasants and the way the peasants helped to move the revolutionaries toward a deeper understanding of the class forces involved in the Cuban revolution. This made it possible to integrate many peasants into the revolutionary army. Che describes the care that was taken to treat rank and file enemy soldiers well, especially the wounded. His crystal clear writing style and fine sense of humor are based on a total grasp of the situation. This book includes two superb articles on Che, one by his comrade Fidel Castro and another by the editor, Mary-Alice Waters, as well as valuable notes, glossary, chronology, and index.

    The making of a revolution and its leaders

    'Episodes of the Cuban Revolutionary War, 1956-58' is Ernesto Guevara¿s own account of the final 2 years of the revolutionary war that led to the first socialist revolution of the Americas. Ernesto ¿Che¿ Guevara, born in Argentina in 1928, became a central leader of the Cuban revolution of 1959. Many people in the United States today know only a romanticized version of this outstanding communist leader through such things as the recent film, ¿The Motorcycle Diaries.¿ 'Episodes' is an unexaggerated, honest account of how the last years of the Cuban revolutionary war were conducted. This marvelous book tells the real story of how the young, adventurous Ernesto Guevara ¿ whose compassion for and interest in the peoples of Latin America shows even in ¿The Motorcycle Diaries¿ ¿ became Che Guevara, the committed, Marxist leader. Full of warmth, eloquence, and, at times, poetic sensibilities, Che¿s diaries show us how the Cuban communist leadership was forged in battle how the revolutionary combatants cemented bonds with peasants in the countryside and with workers in the cities and how a popular revolutionary government was built on these foundations. This book is a must-read for any revolutionary minded fighter today.
