ERNESTO (CHE) GUEVARA
How did Che evolve from a
privileged life in Argentina (medical student), to a supporter of
Fidel Castro's movement to oust Batista in Cuba, to a leader in the
Cuban Revolution, to the Revolution's most committed promoter of
exporting the Revolution?
Why did the Cuban
Revolution turn out to be exceedingly anti-U.S. policy, dominated by
the equivalent of a communist party, and the longest-standing
dictatorship in current Latin America?
What role did U.S. policy
play in radicalizing the Cuban Revolution? What has been the
U.S. policy toward Cuba?
Was Che (and Fidel)
always a marxist-leninist?
Has Che become a
larger-than-life symbol that is popularized in today's culture via
movies, posters, t-shirts, and the like? Can the same be said
for Eva Peron, Frida Kahlo, and Jean-Bertrand Aristede.
