Memory of fire by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

31 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in English and held by 1,641 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 )

108 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here are stories of the Italian striker Guiseppe Meazza whose shorts, in the run up to a penalty kick during the 1938 World Cup, fell down around this knees - he pulled them back up and, with the stadium and goalkeeper in pleats of laughter, scored the goal that saw Italy into the final; of the ice-cool legend Lev Yashin who calmed his nerves before extraordinary performances in the Soviet goal with a smoke and a strong drink; of Ferenc Puskas who, having seen his goal from a beautifully executed free kick disallowed because the referee had not blown his whistle, picked up the ball, took it back to the same spot, and produced an identical shot which landed again in the upper left corner of the net

An uncertain grace by Sebastião Salgado( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 922 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 )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 917 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
Walking words by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

66 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 888 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

Children of the days : a calendar of human history by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

28 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 622 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. "--
Voices of time : a life in stories by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

43 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 619 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
We say no : chronicles, 1963-1991 by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

57 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 364 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
