"To try to reduce Che to a mere cultural symbol is a vulgar oversimplification...Che lives wherever there is a wrong to right and wherever there is a man or woman willing to dedicate his or her energy, efforts, intelligence, and even life to the immense task of building a more worthy, humane, better society and a world of solidarity." (Manuel "Barabarroja" Pineiro)
Manuel Pineiro, known as "Barabarroja," or "Red Beard," was a figure of great mystery for decades. As the head of the Cuban Communist Party's "Americas Department," he oversaw Cuba's operations in support of liberation movements on every continent, especially Latin America and Africa. In this work, he closely collaborated with Che Guevara on the missions to the Congo and Bolivia.
Pineiro spoke publicly for the first time in 1997 on the 30th anniversary of Che's death. This book includes many extraordinary revelations about Cuba's role in Latin America and some profound insights into Che Guevara's life and legacy.
