Abstract:

Paco Ignacio Taibo II, whose extensive contacts in Latin America polical activism give him unprecedented access to hitherto untapped sources, probes Che's life with a storyteller's pen and an historian's judgment, delving into the mystery and myth surrounding Che's life, careers, and ideals. Taibo has access to archives open to few researchers, and he has reached a range of insiders who worked with, and fought beside, Che during the time of his revolutionary activity in Mexico, Cuba, Africa, and South American. Also at Taibo's unique disposal is a previously unknown manuscript writen by Che Guevara himself, describing his experiences in the Congo during the "missing year" in his life. Finally, Taibo offers up a solution to the mystery of Che's final days and death.
