This ed. of this translation originally published: New York: Monthly Review, 1997.
Rather than chronology, geography, or political successions, Eduardo Galeano has organized the various facets of Latin American history according to the patterns of five centuries of exploitation. Thus he is concerned with gold and silver, cacao and cotton, rubber and coffee, fruit, hides and wool, and much more.
Translated from the Spanish.
