The definitive, authorised version of Che's manifesto on revolution, including his final revisions, completed just before his death. It is both an incisive handbook and an invaluable historical source.

'Home will be the open sky...each guerrilla fighter is ready to die not just to defend an idea, but to make that idea a reality.'

Ernesto `Che' Guevara remains one of the world's most iconic political and revolutionary figures. Fascinating to admirers and adversaries alike, he captured the minds of millions with his leadership and his belief in guerrilla warfare as the only effective agent to achieve political change.

Here, in his own classic text on revolution, Che draws on his first-hand experience of the Cuban campaign to document all aspects of guerrilla warfare, from its aims to its organisation and training. He analyses how in Cuba, against all odds, a small band of dedicated fighters grew in strength with the support of the people to defeat a dictator's army.

Praise for `Guerrilla Warfare':

'Che's political testament...a manifesto for revolutionary idealists.' Observer

`An incredible opportunity to see inside the mind of a revolutionary and learn not just why he fought but how.' Leeds Guide

`In "Guerrilla Warfare" we find the idealism that made Che an icon decades after his death and an inspiration.' Buzz magazine

Praise for `The Motorcycle Diaries':

`It's true: Marxists just wanna have fun.' Guardian

'What distinguishes these diaries is that they reveal a human side to El Che which historians have successfully managed to senses El Che's belief that determination and conviction can be enough to change one's self and others...a joy to read from start to finish.' Financial Times

'Political incorrectness galore...his book should do much to humanise the image of a man who found his apotheosis as a late Sixties cultural icon. It is also, incidentally, a remarkably good travel book about South America.' Scotsman

'Politically-correct revolutionary hero? Perhaps a few years later, but in this account Che Guevara comes over as one of the lads.' Bike News
