Patas arriba: la escuela del mundo al revés

Front Cover
Siglo XXI, Jan 1, 1998 - Juvenile Fiction - 365 pages

Hace ciento treinta años, después de visitar el país de las maravillas, Alicia se metió en un espejo para descubrir el mundo al revés. Si Alicia renaciera en nuestros días, no necesitaría atravesar ningún espejo: le bastaría con asomarse a la ventana. Al fin del milenio, el mundo al revés está a la vista: el mundo tal cual es, con la izquierda a la derecha, el ombligo a la espalda y la cabeza en los pies.

Es increíble la forma de actuar del ser humano para bien o para mal. A través de este libro se muestra una enorme visión de ese actuar y del mundo, de la sociedad y del sistema en el que nos desarrollamos. Puntos de vista expresados que se compartirán y que pese a ser un libro escrito hace ya 11 años, no ha cambiado en demasía la sociedad e incluso algunos sucesos se mantienen vigentes.

This book is an amazing overview of how the world, people, the world system and the society is at the time being. Although the book is of the year 1998 I think that things haven't changed much. And if they have done, they have not done it for better. I would recommend this book to everyone on Earth.

About the author (1998)

Eduardo Galeano, born September 3, 1940, in Montevideo, Uruguay, has had a long and active career as a journalist, historian, and political activist. At the age of 13, he began publishing cartoons for the Uruguayan socialist newspaper El Sol. When he was in his early 30s, Galeano was imprisoned during a right-wing military coup and later forced to flee from Uruguay to Argentina. Later, another coup and several death threats forced him to leave Argentina for Spain where he lived in exile until he was permitted to return to Uruguay in 1984. Days and Nights of Love and War resulted from an open conversation with his own memory as he tried to understand what had really happened in his life. He has written numerous books including Football in Sun and Shadow; Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent; Guatemala: Occupied Country; and The Book of Embraces. In 1989, Galeano won the American Book Award for Memory of Fire.
