Auteur: Galeano, Eduardo
Titel: Century of the Wind
Sub titel: Memory of Fire Trilogy, Part 3
As Galeano replays the obscenities and horrors of modern history, he lays bare the fractured soul of Latin America, a civilization deformed by its unequal relationship with the U.S. Hopping from Thomas Edison's workshop in New Jersey to General Pinochet's bloodbath in Chile, Galeano sums up a century ravaged by progress. This provocative montage is the final volume in a trilogy that includes Genesis and Faces and Masks. Together, they form an unconventional rereading of the history of the Western hemisphere.
