Open veins of Latin America : five centuries of the pillage of a continent by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

537 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 5,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[In this book, the author's] analysis of the effects and causes of capitalist underdevelopment in Latin America present [an] account of ... Latin American history. [The author] shows how foreign companies reaped huge profits through their operations in Latin America. He explains the politics of the Latin American bourgeoisies and their subservience to foreign powers, and how they interacted to create increasingly unequal capitalist societies in Latin America.-Back cover
Memory of fire by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

164 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A re-creation of the conquest of the Americas and Latin America, divided into three parts. In the first are the myths of pre-Columbian America; in the second the history of America unfolds from the 15th to 19th century, and in the third 1900 to 1986. This trilogy differs from most in that it presents the making of the New World from the viewpoint of Latin America
Soccer in sun and shadow by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

136 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this witty and rebellious history of world soccer, award-winning writer Eduardo Galeano searches for the styles of play, players, and goals that express the unique personality of certain times and places. In Soccer in Sun and Shadow, Galeano takes us to ancient China, where engravings from the Ming period show a ball that could have been designed by Adidas to Victorian England, where gentlemen codified the rules that we still play by today and to Latin America, where the "crazy English" spread the game only to find it creolized by the locals. All the greats--Pelé, Di Stéfano, Cruyff, Eusébio, Pusk, Gullit, Baggio, Beckenbauer--have joyous cameos in this book. Yet soccer, Galeano cautions, "is a pleasure that hurts." Thus there is also heartbreak and madness. Galeano tells of the suicide of Uruguayan player Abdón Porte, who shot himself in the center circle of the Nacional's stadium; of the Argentine manager who wouldn't let his team eat chicken because it would bring bad luck; and of scandal-riven Diego Maradona whose real crime, Galeano suggests, was always "the sin of being the best." Soccer is a game that bureaucrats try to dull and the powerful try to manipulate, but it retains its magic because it remains a bewitching game--"a feast for the eyes ... and a joy for the body that plays it"--Exquisitely rendered in the magical stories of Soccer in Sun and Shadow"--

An uncertain grace by Sebastião Salgado( Book )

18 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a Brazilian mine where 50,000 mud-covered men haul heavy bags of dirt up and down slippery ladders in search of a stray nugget of gold, to a former lake in western Africa now swallowed by the encroaching desert, where emaciated, starving people walk over its surface of sand, photographer Sebastião Salgado explores the live of the planet's often ignored people with a critical eye and an empathetic heart
Upside down : a primer for the looking-glass world by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a series of lesson plans and a "program of study" about our beleaguered planet, Upside Down, takes us on a wild trip through the global looking glass. From a master class in "The Impunity of Power" to a seminar on "The Sacred Car," with tips along the way on "How to Resist Useless Vices" and a declaration of "The Right to Rave," Galeano surveys a world unevenly divided between abundance and deprivation, carnival and torture, power and its lack. We have accepted a "reality" we should reject, he teaches us, one where poverty kills, people are hungry, machines are more precious than humans, and children work from dark to dark. In the north, we are fed on a diet of artificial need and all made the same by the things we own; the south is the galley slave enabling our greed." "A work of fire and charm, Upside Down makes us see our world anew and even glimpse how we might set it right."--Jacket
Children of the days : a calendar of human history by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

49 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Galeano's new book is his richest and most poetic yet, a joyous calendar of the sacred and the damned, a book of inspiration for those fighting tyranny, greed, and amnesia Unfurling like a medieval book of days, each page of Galeano's new work has an illuminating story that takes inspiration from that day of the calendar year. Each entry resurrects the heroes and heroines who have fallen off the historical map, but whose lives remind us of our darkest hours and sweetest victories. Among many others, you will discover the Brazilians who held a "smooch in" to protest a dictatorship that banned kisses that "undermined public morals" and learn of the day Mexico invaded the United States, the "sacrilegious" women who had the effrontery to marry each other in a church in 1901, and Abdul Kassem Ismael, the grand vizier of Persia, who kept books safe from war by creating a walking library, 117,000 books aboard four hundred camels, forming a mile-long caravan. Beautifully translated by Galeano's longtime collaborator, Mark Fried, Children of the Days is a great humanist treasure that shows us how to live and how to remember. It awakens the best in us."--
Guatemala: occupied country by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

19 editions published between 1967 and 1969 in 3 languages and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La canción de nosotros : novela by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

71 editions published between 1975 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La canción de nosotros es una novela del exilio: el autor evoca su tierra prohibida, y la recrea a través de las aventuras que en sus páginas se entrecruzan, sobre el trasfondo de la dictadura militar, en el tiempo de los horrores y los desafíos. Los libros de Eduardo Galeano son inclasificables, porque alevosamente violan las fronteras que dividen los géneros literarios. Esta obra, sin embargo, puede ser definida como una novela. Así lo entendió el jurado del concurso Casa de las Américas, que en 1975 le otorgó ese premio, compartido con Mascaró, el cazador americano, de Haroldo Conti."--Cubierta
Walking words by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Striking collaboration between Galeano's tales rooted in the oral tradition and Brazilian artist José Francisco Borges' woodcuts in the cordel tradition is given a rich third dimension by Fried's imaginative translation of Palabras andantes. Readers will have to look elsewhere for introductory material, but in effect the book introduces and explains itself"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Espejos : una historia casi universal by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

34 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in Spanish and Chinese and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galeano revisa la historia de la humanidad hasta hoy, y lo hace desde la óptica de los hechos y de las personas menos conocidas, de los que no figuran en los diarios ni en las fotos. Como dice el subtítulo del libro, se trata de una historia casi universal, de un inventario general del mundo que aparece iluminado por este escritor capaz de enlazar lo cotidiano, lo poderoso y la denuncia con lo más sencillo, con el humor o con la más exquisita ironía. En este libro se entremezclan los relatos que nos llevan, como sus propios títulos indican, desde la "Fundación del machismo", la "Resurrección de Jesús", "Las edades de Juana la Loca" o "La educación en tiempos de Franco" hasta "Los derechos civiles en el fútbol."
Faces and masks by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in Spanish and English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second volume of Eduardo Galeano's Memory of Fire trilogy, Faces and Masks is an astonishing Latin American-eye view of the New World in the making. Here is the tangled, cataclysmic history of our hemisphere from the 1700s up to the dawn of our present century, told through characters as resonant and compelling as Simon Bolívar, Toussaint L'Ouverture, and Billy the Kid. With its brilliant and imaginative blend of journalism, scholarship, and political passion, Faces and Masks is a panoramic interpretation of the Americas no work of history has previously imagined."
Intervenciones by Noam Chomsky( )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Here, for the first time, is the Spanish translation of Noam Chomsky & rsquo;sNew York TimesbestsellerInterventions. Since 2002, Chomsky has written a column for The New York Times Syndicate in which he cogently and critically examines the leading issues of the day. These columns have been published in major newspapers around the globe, including theInternational Herald Tribune, and have helped gain an even larger global audience for Chomsky & rsquo;s views. Yet few have appeared in the pages of US or Canadian newspapers, and only one of the columns included here appeared in the pages ofThe New York Timesitself. Concise and fiercely argued, Intervencionescovers the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Bush presidency, Israel and Palestine, Israel & rsquo;s invasion of Lebanon, national security, the escalating threat of nuclear warfare, and more. It is a powerful and accessible new book from one of America & rsquo;s foremost political intellectuals and dissidents. Noam Chomskyhas taught for many years at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he is Institute Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. His 1957 bookSyntactic Structuresis widely credited with having revolutionized the field of modern linguistics. Chomsky is the author of numerous best-selling political works, includingHegemony or Survival(Metropolitan/Owl). Eduardo Galeanois the author ofThe Open Veins of Latin Americaand many other classics. He lives in Montevideo, Uruguay

Voices of time : a life in stories by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this kaleidoscope of reflections, renowned South American author Eduardo Galeano ranges widely, from childhood to love, music, plants, fear, indignity, and indignation. In the signal style of his bestselling and much-admired Memory of Fire trilogy--brief fragments that build steadily into an organic whole--Galeano offers a rich, wry history of his life and times that is both calmly philosophical and fiercely political. Beginning with blue algae, the earliest of life forms, these 333 vignettes alight on the Galeano family's immigration to Uruguay in the early twentieth century, the fate of love letters intercepted by a military dictatorship, abuses by the rich and powerful, the latest military outrages, and the author's own encounters with all manner of living matter, including generals, bums, dissidents, soccer stars, ducks, and trees. Out of these meditations emerges neither anger nor bitterness, but a celebration of a blessed life in a harsh world"--Publisher's description
