With unprecedented access to personal archives, government documents, and rare interviews, Anderson reveals many details of Che’s life that have long been cloaked in secrecy and intrigue.

Meticulously researched and full of exclusive information, Che Guevara illuminates as never before this mythic figure who embodied the high-water mark of revolutionary Communism as a force in history.

This is a thoroughly comprehensive and balanced biography. Only Jon Lee Anderson, with his unique journalistic background covering guerilla movements throughout the world, could have written a biography of Che Guevara with such political insight. Anderson also had access to private documents never before released. In this book, you will not find a "Che" who is prettified or a "Guevara" who is a devil. You will find a fighter who often lets his goals justify his violent actions. Yet there is also no doubt that Guevara fought for the oppressed and gave his heart to the side of the weak and exploited.
