The basics of the ideas that were the guide to Che Guevara¿s actions are all here. The need for workers and farmers to support each others¿ struggles for freedom without regard to borders ( working-class internationalism ); the impossibility of a peaceful or electoral road to a "nice" capitalism; the role of the political consciousness of the working class-- and the need for workers to lead-- in the economic and political process of building socialism; the struggle against bureaucracy; the role of revolutionary armed struggle to defeat the most ruthless empire the world has ever seen¿the Yanqui Empire; the flowering of the individual under socialism and the building of a new human in the process of revolutionary struggle¿how we working people can improve ourselves as human beings by participating in that struggle; all these themes to which Che returned again and again as subjects to act on are in basic outline in this book. Here you will find, not the icon on a poster or t-shirt, but the living world-revolutionary leader whose perspectives we need today and will need tomorrow in the battle to bring down the U.S.¿the last¿Empire.

Read this book and you will understand why the CIA and the US military chased Che Guevara from Cuba to Africa to Bolivia to murder him. Che was more than just a heroic revolutionary example for his time. He was an important revolutionary thinker who continued the ideas of real revolutionary Marxism against the awful vision of Stalinist dictatorship and reformist compliance with capitalism. In these speeches and articles, especially in his On Socialism and Man Che uses the practical experience of Cuba to continue Marx and Lenin's discussion of what the fight for socialism is all about. With the growing social and economic crisis in the world, with the need for anti-imperialist struggle in the Mid East, Korea, and Venezuela, Che's ideas are needed today as much or even more than when he lived. Also read Pathfinder's acclaimed editions of The Bolivian Diary of Ernesto Che Guevara and Che's Episodes of the Cuban Revolutionary War, 1956-5

This book contains some of the great works of Ernesto Che Guevara, such as, "Socialism and Man in Cuba," a classic, and the speech to the Tricontinental Congress where he called for "Two, Three,Many Vietnams." If you only know Che as an icon on a poster or t-shirt, buy this book to read what he had to say.
