Century of the Wind: Memory of Fire, Volume 3

Book Overview
The third volume of Eduardo Galeano's Memory of Fire trilogy, Century of the Wind offers a panorama of Galeano's singular vision of the past, turbulent century: from the bucolic New Jersey laboratory of Thomas Alva Edison to the armies of Emiliano Zapata and Fidel Castro to the Reagan-era CIA neutralizations in the forests of Latin America. Dizzying, enraging, and beautifully written, Century of the Wind is a sweeping interpretation of the Americas no work of history has previously imagined.
