Open Veins of Latin America

爱德华多·加莱亚诺 Eduardo Galeano
拉丁美洲:被切开的血管(Open Veins of Latin America)简介:
Since its U.S. debut a quarter-century ago, this brilliant text has set a new standard for historical scholarship of Latin America. It is also an outstanding political economy, a social and cultural narrative of the highest quality, and perhaps the finest description of primitive capital accumulation since Marx.
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, petroleum, iron, nickel, manganese, copper, aluminum ore, nitrates, and tin. These are the veins which he traces through the body of the entire continent, up to the Rio Grande and throughout the Caribbean, and all the way to their open ends where they empty into the coffers of wealth in the United States and Europe.
Weaving fact and imagery into a rich tapestry, Galeano fuses scientific analysis with the passions of a plundered and suffering people. An immense gathering of materials is framed with a vigorous style that never falters in its command of themes. All readers interested in great historical, economic, political, and social writing will find a singular analytical achievement, and an overwhelming narrative that makes history speak, unforgettably.
This classic is now further honored by Isabel Allende’s inspiring introduction. Universally recognized as one of the most important writers of our time, Allende once again contributes her talents to literature, to political principles, and to enlightenment.《拉丁美洲被切开的血管》是一部关于拉丁美洲的杰作,一部用爱情小说和海盗小说的方式莱谈政治经济学的书,一部提示被官方掩盖和篡改的历史、戳穿殖民者的谎言和罪恶的巨著,一部在全球 用多种语言再版四十多次、逾三十多年而经久不衰的经典。委内瑞拉总统查韦斯,在一个特殊的历史时刻,把此书赠给了美国总统奥巴马。作者加莱亚诺说:“历史对我们来说,一直是一个残酷的老师。”
