Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The award-winning Latin American author of the Memory of Fire trilogy presents a kaleidoscopic, trenchant look at the dichotomy that exists between first-world wealth, privileges, and power and third-world deprivation, helplessness, and torture, in a series of essays that include "The Sacred Car," "The Impunity of Power," "The Right to Rave," and "How to Resist Useless Vices." Reprint.


Review:

"[B]oth electric and exhortative....You'll need to allow the professor his didactic moments. He's angry and with good reason."

Voice Literary Supplement, December 2000

Review:

"...Galeano...in compiling this catalog of crimes and absurdities has both the acidity of Jonathan Swift and his dark humor."

New Yorker, 01/08/2001

Book Description: St Martin s Press, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Picador USA. 208 x 137 mm. Brand New Book. In a series of mock lesson plans and a program of study Galeano provides an eloquent, passionate, funny and shocking expose of First World privileges and assumptions. 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 The Right to Rave --he surveys a world unevenly divided between abundance and deprivation, carnival and torture, power and helplessness. We have accepted a reality we should reject, he writes, 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 things we own; the South is the galley slave enabling our greed. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780312420314
