Guevara’s day-by-day chronicle of the 1966–67 guerrilla campaign in Bolivia, an effort to forge a continent-wide revolutionary movement of workers and peasants and open the road to socialist revolution in South America. Includes excerpts from the diaries and accounts of other combatants, including—for the first time in English—My Campaign with Che
by Bolivian leader Inti Peredo.
Selected for inclusion in “Significant Books of the Last 75 Years.”—Foreign Affairs
“Waters’ meticulously edited pair of volumes [Episodes of the Cuban Revolutionary War
and The Bolivian Diary
] is now the best original source for English-speaking scholars. Her attention to detail and her precision do not overcome the rough eloquence that was Guevara’s style; the transcendental message of a new moral order bites through the prose with deceptive simplicity.”—Hispanic American Historical Review
“Beautifully edited and illustrated.…”—Russell W. Ramsey,
Troy State University, in Hispanic American Historical Review
