Eduardo Galeano ✓ 1 CHARACTERS SUMMARY Å MIAMIMOTELS.US ✓ Eduardo Galeano READ Las venas abiertas de América Latina D this is an intellectually honest and valuable study Library JournalA dazzling barrage of words and ideas Histor. For the past month I have been collecting my thoughts and writing them out and putting them into paragraphs and shaping those paragraphs into a longer article of some sort But nothing has yet coalesced into a thing I would call a review or even a passable reflection This book has left me with a complicated bundle of thoughts and they seem to still transcend the pleasant shaping of words and punctuation into sentences and sentences into paragraphs and paragraphs into something that communicates an appreciation of some piece of work But here I go again Back at the well feeling somehow obliged to make something good out of this scramble of thoughtsPart of my problem is that this book has me caught between three worlds that I have a hard time bringing together The first world is the social democrat and dedicated activist who is particularly concerned by the wrath of economic ineuality in the world and how it is perpetuated by capitalism The second world is that of the historian my field and the thing that I call my profession when I am asked what it is even if I make my money in other ways the thing which nourishes my understanding of the world the thing which gets me excited and impassioned about the world The third world is that of the reader who hopes that a few nice words put together in the right nice order will produce something greater than the sum of its parts and that as a reader I will be able to recognize and appreciate and over enjoy the outcome This world hits all of those points I have so much to say But I must for the sake of time and for the sake of yours keep this short You have already read too much about meThis book when it was released was a firecracker It was bold in its scope nearly unthinkably audacious the sort of work which was hoping to set the world at unease And it succeeded In this work Galeano condemns centuries of pillaging from one of the grand great rich continents of the world for the benefit of another outside continent and its peoples He explains how that process was essential for the fundamental advancement of that other continent how it depended on the natural resources human resources and magical resources that were discovered on that new continent to make important technological and financial advancements In this book Galeano explores how that relationship changed and altered and became and possessive to the point where the entire continent was itself a possession in the great empires of the North And in this book he was one of the first historians and perhaps the first to translate his ideas into a work produced for the public which connected the centuries of pillaging that resulted from European Empire to the contemporary problem of North American Empire in a logical and sensible and horrific progression of time and power That is over four hundred years of history covering an entire continent and of exploitation tossing in a bit of the history of two other continents as well and attempting to explain the driving narrative or challenge of millions upon millions of lives past and contemporary in the process And then it also talks about the contemporary issues of his own time When I said that this book was audacious I meant it It is unthinkably audacious And surprisingly it does all of this fairly well if not perfectly if not seamlessly it does it well That is because Galeano writes like a writer and not like a historian an at the time uniue ability and which has been eualled by few other people working in the field of studying and understanding the past He has a strong opinion about the past which is undeniable and refreshing in its way It is clear that for him as somebody with a historical mindset the past distant and near explains his life and the lives that he sees around him And we all have opinions about our lives of course and many of us develop opinions about the lives that we see around us as well be them informed or ignorant He has just taken the extra step of looking into the past lives which made his life what it was and found something there that informed and reinforced his frustration He also doesn t hide his opinion behind over written analysis and poorly constructed sentences as so many historians do and neither does he attempt to make the history any less personal than it has to be he isn t in essence attempting to be academic in his writing That said his research is uite impressive by semi academic standards well informed balanced and deeper than you would expect from most any other history book which is written for the general public In the end Galeano s contentious presentation is vindicated by his research To this end Galeano is known as a historian poet or a poet historian That s a nice little niche that he managed to live in I think you will understand it when you read the book when you understand his language and feel the fire breathing passion that ignited its creationWhen I read this book I discovered and was reminded of a great many things about my life in Canada The wealth of my country is predicated on the poverty of other regions These regions have never benefitted from the protection of self development in uite the way that my own has and Canada and Canadian companies are actively working to ensure that those kinds of economic policies never develop and that the underdeveloped countries of the work remain underdeveloped And now that I live in Colombia and have been living here for nearly a year I can see it and feel it in the air The conseuences of a systematic effort by the powers of the world to strip away the richness of this continent its cultures its peoples in an effort to destabilize them politically financially and geographically and reap all of the benefits It is obvious everywhere It is felt everywhere The English language does not communicate this or at least my command of the language doesn t You have to be here to see it and taste it the way that blood and exploitation and desperation are built into a continent that is rich beyond all possible imagination which has had its veins tapped for centuries and which still finds itself muddied in the pools of underdevelopment The North as Galeano calls us fortunate ones has been a cruel mistress a wrestling partner who is infinitely stronger and its weight bears down on this place The North rather than this place wins everyday in everyway possible The book isn t perfect But it doesn t need to be It is a leaping off point for an entire way of understanding the world a confirmation of things that I have imagined to be true that I have heard sailing in the air at universities and in the street and a great searing cry against the dehumanization of a continent because of the unfair distribution of international labour and trade I have so much to read so much to learn As a side note on the afternoon that I finished reading this book I contacted a friend of mine in Canada The two of us did our graduate programs together I told him about the book told him to urgently read it when he finished his thesis told him how it changed my way of understanding Latin America and the place of underdeveloped regions in the world how it challenged some of the few remaining liberal lies that I had gestating in my brain I said to him also that this book convinced me than ever that free trade is a horrifying economic policy and must be fought In this book I read about the horrid past of an entire continent and saw the future of my country It should be read by everybody It is urgent and necessary The Shooting Party honest and valuable study Library JournalA dazzling barrage of words and ideas Histor.
