First published in 1971, Galeano's analysis of the effects and causes of capitalist underdevelopment in Latin America presents a clear, passionate account of almost 500 years of Latin American history. Galeano shows how foreign companies reaped huge profits through their operations in Latin America. He explains the politics of the Latin American bourgeoisie and their subservience to foreignpowers, and how they interacted to create increasingly unequal capitalist societies in Latin America. The book continues to speak volumes to generations who want to understand capitalism & exploitation in Latin America, & elsewhere.
