Viva Che! by Andrew Sinclair
Book DescriptionThis book on Che Guevara, in the words of his comrades an with tributes from the leading figures of the world, was the first book to be published on the guerrilla hero in the revolutionary year of 1968, when all change seemed possible. Collected in Cuba the previous year, "Viva Che!" is the only contemporary portrait of the international icon, to appear so soon after his murder in Bolivia, and captures the charged feeling of the time. With such contributors as Graham Greene, Robert Lowell, Susan Sontag and Italo Calvino, it is a unique and enduring testament to the period. As Calvino wrote after a meeting, 'In my mind, the discussions with Che have gone on all these years, and the more time has passed, the more he has been right. 'This new edition includes new material by Andrew Sinclair which reveals how Che's death and example led to the revolutions of 1968, particularly in France, the UK and the USA. It also includes Fidel Castro's speech on Che's death, along with Inti Peredo's insistence that the struggle would continue. These features, which are fully complemented with posters, intimate photographs and other ephemera, will ensure that this is an essential purchase for anyone interested in this enduring icon, and the legacy he left behind.
