Liberators and Patriots of Latin America: Biographies of 23 Leaders from Doña Marina (1505-1530) to Bishop Romero (1917-1980)

Synopsis

Agents of change, they have been both damned and praised-but uniformly remembered as national figures. Some are revered all over Latin America. Yet most are largely unknown beyond their borders. This book makes them and their times and causes understood. The 17 men and six women span generations and causes-Toussaint L'Ouverture of Haiti, Juan Per¿n and Eva Per¿n of Argentina, Jos¿ Mart¿ and Fidel Castro of Cuba, Dolores Jim¿nez y Muro and Hermila Galindo of the Mexican Revolution of 1910, Ch¿ Guevara and nine others were passionately involved with independence and equality.
