Rural Gurrillas in Latin America– Richard Gott
This is a really comprehensive history of the Latin American Guerrilla movement post the Cuban revolution. It’s dense for me, as it deals with political theory which I have never studied, such as the communist influence in Latin America. I recommend it highly to folks who would like to delve into the history of Latin American Guerrillas, espeically if you are about to travel to Latin American countries and would like to gain a bit of understanding of the political climate and history of the regon. It was never released in the U.S, apparently because of copyright reasons, although I’m pretty sure it’s because it openly talks about the U.S’s, particularly the C.I.A’s involvement, in Latin American political turmoil.
