Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent

Cover of Open Veins of Latin Americ
by Eduardo Galeano

Since its U.S. debut a quarter-century ago, this brilliant text has set a new standard for historical scholarship of Latin America. It is also an outstanding political economy, a social and cultural narrative of the highest quality, and perhaps the finest description of primitive capital accumulation since Marx.
