Here is the first full-length, critical study of Eduardo Galeano, born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1940, author of the monumental trilogy Memory of Fire, and of the ground-breaking Open Veins of Latin America

Part political biography, part cultural theory, this book examines events that have shaped Galeano's life—from his close personal friendship with Allende, through the dictatorships in Uruguay and Argentina that forced him into exile, to the ongoing relationship between Galeano and Subcomandante Marcos, leader of the Chiapas rebellion. The political effect of his work has been compared to that of Noam Chomsky.

Daniel Fischlin teaches literature at the University of Guelph, Ontario. Martha Nandorfy is a distinguished Hispanist scholar teaches at Concordia University, Montreal.
