Ralph Berg rated it did not like it May 23, Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Who do not have faces, but arms. Look no further than Open Veins in Latin America for a compelling narrative that answers these questions.

Facts are obviously molded for dramatic appeal handpicking specific dates, excerpts from JFK speeches, etc. Gaelano digs deeply into the galeeano and political histories across the Spanish speaking world, and his fluency and ability to integrate social history and heavy economics is deeply formidable.

It pretends to be destiny and would like to be thought eternal. Even the author disavows the book.

Even the author disavows the book. Massive amounts of information here presented by someone who clearly knows how to write while effortlessly crossing between topics and literary genres. Galeano’s prose is eduaardo at times, and when he spends the final portion of the book explicating economic data and policy decisions from the late s, it can be a bit of a slog.

A work of impressive scope, essentially the history of a whole continent. If at least for the amount of historical and economical issues touched inside these pages it is worth reading, actually the chapter on the nature of international loans could had been easily written nowadays by just swapping the names of a few countries in for others in Aertas.

Footnotes are lacking for a staggering amount of quantitative data, despite their couth and seemingly objective presentation. That is indeed a problem with any kind of systematic exploration of these kind of issues. Compared to, Upside Down, I found this book by Galeano to be not only a bit more dense but also more tedious to read. It’s sad that anyone takes it seriously today. He admitted he had little knowledge about what he was writing. I am neither a history buff nor Latino insider, so I discovered quite a bit, even as I concurrently traveled and experienced aspects of the region firsthand.

By the simple trick of mailing them back one by one, those good thieves gave new life to the letters and new illusions to the old man. For if only a tenth of what is said were true, it would still be a humanitarian story worth telling.

An important reminder that capitalism’s playground is global, thus our struggles, solidarity, and change must also be global. Who don’t create art, but handicrafts.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Gold, silver, coffee, cacao, sugar, bananas, oil, and tin all played their roles in export culture. It should be noted, however, that the author applies no science or organization to his storytelling.

Now, jokes aside, some parts of the book are written in a rather loud tone which many will consider is borderline on propaganda but let me suggest to the adventurous reader to just ignore that and delve into the facts which are well researched and for which many references are given.


Recommended for all students of Economics, Xa, and History who wish to see their discipline from a Latin American perspective, and anyone who wants to better understand the experience of the poor in the Global Exuardo.

The author himself has proclaimed his obsession as a writer saying, “I’m abwrtas writer obsessed with remembering, with remembering the past of America above all and above all that of Latin America, intimate land condemned to amnesia.

He admitted he had little knowledge about what he was writing. And because in the history of humankind every act of destruction meets its response, sooner or later, in an act of creation. 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 dw after it was published.

I have given up on this book. Who do not have names, but numbers.
