Congo Diary: The Story of Che Guevara's "Lost" Year in Africa (Centro de Estudios Che
Featuring a foreword by Gabriel Garcia Marquez ("Che Guevara in Africa"), this book fills in the missing chapter in Che Guevara's life as head of the secret Cuban force that went to aid the liberation movement in the Congo against the Belgian colonialists in 1965. The idea was to prepare a group of Cubans for the mission to Bolivia, as well as to assist African national liberation movements.This diary remained unpublished for decades because of its controversial content, but, like his other diaries, reveals Che's great literary gift, his razor-sharp intellect, his dry wit, and his brutal honesty. Because this diary deals with what Che admits was a "failure," he examines every painful detail about what went wrong in order to draw constructive lessons for future expeditions.This publication of the complete Congo Diary has been thoroughly revised by Che's widow, Aleida March, and published in association with the Che Guevara Studies Center in Havana.Features:Forewords by Gabriel Garcia Marquez ("Che Guevara in Africa") and Che's daughter, Aleida GuevaraTwenty-eight pages of unpublished photosExtensive notes and glossary explaining Swahili termsBackcover blurbs by Nelson Mandela and Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Heart of Darkness & Selections from The Congo
Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time • Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American ReadIntroduction by Caryl PhillipsCommentary by H. L. Mencken, E. M. Forster, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, Bertrand Russell, Lionel Trilling, Chinua Achebe, and Philip GourevitchOriginally published in 1902, Heart of Darkness remains one of this century’s most enduring works of fiction. Written several years after Joseph Conrad’s grueling sojourn in the Belgian Congo, the novel is a complex meditation on colonialism, evil, and the thin line between civilization and barbarity. This edition contains selections from Conrad’s Congo Diary of 1890—the first notes, in effect, for the novel, which was composed at the end of that decade. Virginia Woolf wrote of Conrad: “His books are full of moments of vision. They light up a whole character in a flash. . . . He could not write badly, one feels, to save his life.”
Che in Africa: Che Guevara's Congo
A year before his fateful Bolivia mission, Che Guevara led a group of guerrillas to support the Congolese liberation movement in 1965. Considerable speculation has always surrounded Guevara's disappearance from Cuba and why he went to fight in Africa.The story behind the Congo mission is now revealed in this book, which includes Guevara's previously unpublished "Congo Diary." Guevara's diary assesses the role of figures within the African liberation movements, among them Patrice Lumumba and Laurent Kabila, leader of the 1997 overthrow of the Mobutu regime in Zaire (Congo).Author William Galvez quotes recently declassified CIA documents showing how the CIA assembled a mercenary band of white South Africans and others to pursue Guevara's guerrilla column.

"...and so I was launched to be a preacher of the gospel to the ends of the earth." ~ Herbert E.

Despite shipwreck, the death of his wife, and many other trials in the jungles of the Belgian Congo, Herbert faithfully proclaimed the gospel of Christ leaving behind a Christ-like example for future generations.

Black Livingstone: A True Tale of Adventure in the Nineteenth-Century Congo (Pagan Kennedy
A largely untold story of an extraordinary historical figure, this biography sheds light on the life of William Sheppard, a 19th-century African American who, for more than 20 years, defied segregation and operated a missionary run by black Americans in the Belgian Congo. This work shows how Sheppard returned to United States periodically, and traveled the country telling tales of his adventures to packed auditoriums. An anthropologist, photographer, big-game hunter, and art collector, the man billed as the "Black Livingstone" helped expose the atrocities that occurred under the reign of King Leopold, and this stirring work tells how he eventually helped to break Belgium's hold on the Congo.

The Road That Time Has Erased: Overland through Africa in the 1970s - a Travel Diary, and what has happened along the route
Africa is a continent of highly varied sights and experiences. This book provides a day by day account of the travels of two couples and their vehicles from South Africa to the Straits of Gibraltar and Europe in the 1970s, and describes the challenges that had to be overcome to achieve this goal. The experiences include the myriads of flamingos in a Rift Valley salt lake, tracking a gorilla family on hands and knees through the bamboo forests of Rwanda, an overnight hike with an armed ranger to see the most spectacular of erupting volcanoes, towing a Land Rover for over 200 kilometres along potholed Congolese roads, an overnight sea voyage by dhow sleeping on lice-ridden dried fish, being arrested for photographing a railway station, and negotiating the Trans Sahara Highway through the remote desert towns of Agadez and Tamanrasset. This retrospective log also provides the opportunity to observe the changes that have occurred in the places visited over the intervening years. The route taken cannot be followed today. This is a record of a past period when crossing the Congo Basin and the central Sahara was feasible. whereas today large sections of the route are regarded as unsafe for any travel, particularly those travelers driving their own vehicles.

This book takes a brief historical look at the actual unpretentious canalside house where, during the Second World War, Anne Frank wrote the diary that has now become world famous. Central to the book is the period when Anne, with her family and four others, hid from the German occupiers in the "back annexe". After betrayal and deportation only Anne's father, Otto Frank, survived the war. The discovery and publication of the diary--now the most translated book to come out of the Netherlands--evoked interest in the former hiding place, and by the early fifties visits had already begun.

Che: A Revolutionary Icon
Che is the story of the man behind the famous photograph—a richly illustrated biography of the Marxist revolutionary, guerrilla leader, military theorist, and pop icon. Che Guevara was a Marxist revolutionary and an ally of Fidel Castro who became a major figure during the Cuban Revolution. Born into a middle-class family in Rosario, Argentina, he studied medicine, but after seeing terrible poverty in Latin America, he concluded that the only way to change society was through violent rebellion. He then became a champion for worldwide revolution. Since his death, Guevara has become a legendary political figure. His name is often equated with rebellion, revolution, and socialism. Others, however, remember that he could be ruthless and ordered prisoners executed without trial in Cuba. In any case, Guevara’s life continues to be a subject ofgreat public interest and has been explored and portrayed in numerous books and films, including The Motorcycle Diaries. On October 9, 1967, he was executed by the Bolivian army, his hands were cut off, and preserved in formaldehyde to confirm his identity. After he died, “Che” became an even bigger hero for revolution with Time magazine naming him one of the 100 most influential people of the twentieth century and an iconic photograph o...
