Overview

Upside Down: A Primer for the Looking-Glass World by Eduardo Galeano

In a series of mock lesson plans, the author of the incomparable Memory of Fire trilogy provides an eloquent, passionate, funny, and shocking exposé of our first world privileges and assumptions. From a master class in "The Impunity of Power" to a seminar on "The Sacred Car"-with tips along the way on "How to Resist Useless Vices" and a declaration of "The Right to Rave"-he guides us through a world unevenly divided between abundance and deprivation, power and helplessness.

Author Biography: Eduardo Galeano, one of Latin America's most distinguished writers, journalists, and historians, is the author of the Memory of Fire trilogy, Open Veins of Latin America, Soccer in Sun and Shadow, and many other works. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1940, he lived in exile in Argentina and Spain for many years before returning to Uruguay. He is the recipient of the first Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom.

I didn't know what to expect when I started reading this book, but I was very pleased with it. Mr. Galeano is a good writer and this particular book has much to say. I wish more people would think things over like Mr. Galeano does.
