You can learn how tin was extracted from Bolivia’s mines in what were essentially slavery conditions just to produce one of the top 10 tycoons in the world at the time.

I read the English translation.

As Veias Abertas da América Latina by Eduardo Galeano (4 star ratings)

En la alquimia colonial y neocolonial, el oro se transfigura en chatarra y los alimentos se convierten en veneno. Peter could hear the beating of that heart, crazed with joy at receiving a message from a woman.

Look no further than Open Veins in Latin America for a compelling narrative that answers these questions. O simplemente, nunca la han perdido. Though this theme is constantly addressed throughout Open Veins of Latin America, I found the book to be bit slower read due to the fact that Galeano a Compared to, Upside Down, I found this book by Galeano to be not only a bit more dense but also more tedious to read.

Es el bombardeo de conceptos que integran este libro en los cuales el autor recurre una y otra vez citando cada frase para comprobar que ha sido publicado antes. Victoria rated it did not like it Dec 25, A work of impressive scope, essentially the history of a whole continent.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. The folks that post their assortment of pictures to accompany the songs provide sometimes “Oh, wow” views of Latin America. His critique of the influence of the colonizer over the colonized truly intrigued me. For if only a tenth of what is said were true, it would still be a humanitarian story worth telling. In the colonial and neocolonial alchemy, gold changes into scrap metal and food into poison. Hard to finish and extremely boring.


They went off with it and when they opened it they found that it was filled with letters. Even the author disavows the book.

Quedamos dependientes, humillados, desgraciados y hambrientos. To me it is a splendid metaphor of writing in general and his writing in particular. To his credit, in the years before he passed away, Galeano repudiated a lot of his views in this book and felt he did not have the requisite expertise to pen a book on political economy. The biggest issue with this book other than the tone that seemed to scare a few other reviewers is that I find the structure prone to repetition.

A People’s History of the Third Worldalso fantastic lectures online. Facts are obviously molded for dramatic appeal handpicking specific dates, excerpts from JFK speeches, etc. Este libro es lectura obligatoria para cualquier latinoamericano.

Latin America’s underdevelopment arises from external development, and continues to feed it. Some quotes in the follow-up seven years later still sound very pertinent today the book was originally written inwith the short third section added on in It’s sad that anyone takes it seriously today.

Who don’t have religions, but superstitions. An important reminder that capitalism’s playground is global, thus our struggles, solidarity, and change must also be global. It is an historical analysis of the mechanisms and effects of colonialism and imperialism as they have been employed in Latin America.

Our part of the world, known today as Latin America, was precocious: Footnotes are lacking for a staggering amount of quantitative data, despite their couth and seemingly objective presentation. He calls the early Castro revolution a great success and exhorts the rest of Latin America to embrace the same route.

But good luck doesn’t rain down yesterday, today, tomorrow, or ever. Es un libro escrito para conversar con la gente: Thanks for telling us about the problem. Com rated it did not like it Feb 13, Who don’t have culture, but folklore.

The laundry list of exploitation and unchecked human suffering chronicled here, which goes back to the days of Cortez, still has the power to make jaws drop even over 50 years after it was published.

What’s behind the criticism of galeanp

Footnotes are lacking for a st Eduardo Galeano passionately recounts the horrific events of the last 7 centuries in Latin America.

El oro se transfigura en chatarra, y los alimentos se convierten en veneno. Well, we’ve got to see one by one and a pattern clearly emerges, and that is the linking thread of the book.

Though this theme is constantly addressed throughout Open Veins of Latin America, I found the book to galean bit slower read due to the fact that Galeano analyzes the entire history of Latin America. In these lands we are not experiencing the primitive infancy of capitalism but its vicious senility. Yet it is still quite accessible and any dedicated reader should be able to finish it.

Eduardo Galeano ad recounts the horrific events of the last 7 centuries in Latin America. Good luck doesn’t even fall in a fine drizzle, no matter how hard the nobodies summon it, even if their left hand is tickling, or if they begin the new day with their right foot, or start the new year with a change of brooms.
