One of Time magazine's "icons of the century, " Ernesto Che Guevara was born in Argentina and studied medicine. After meeting Fidel Castro in Mexico, he joined the revolutionary forces that overthrew the Batista dictatorship in Cuba. He later led guerrilla missions to Africa and Bolivia, where he was killed by CIA-backed forces.
Camilo Guevara (preface) is 42 years old and is Che Guevara's and Aleida March's eldest son. He has written an insightful preface for this new edition.
Fidel Castro led a guerrilla movement in Cuba that overthrew the Batista dictatorship in 1959. Since then, the Cuban president has been the nemesis of ten U.S. administrations. He stepped down in 2007 but has regularly expressed his views on world events and political personalities in his famous "reflections."
