Open Veins of Latin America

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

The latest bestseller book may not come directly from Bolivia, but it deals with the history of the South American contintent as a whole.

I am, of course, talking about “Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent” by Eduardo Galeano.  A book that only last week was probably little known, even amongst Latin American enthusiasts, but has now risen to fame after President Chavez of Venezuela gave a copy to President Obama.

The book is available on Amazon, although it currently shows delivery times of up to 6 weeks!
