About this item

Important Made in USA Origin Disclaimer: For certain items sold by Walmart on Walmart.com, the displayed country of origin information may not be accurate or consistent with manufacturer information. For updated, accurate country of origin data, it is recommended that you rely on product packaging or manufacturer information.

The award-winning Latn author of the Memory of Fire trilogy presents a kaleidoscopic, trenchant look at the dichotomy that exists between first-world wealth, privileges, and power and third-world deprivation, helplessness, and torture, in a series of essays that include "The Sacred Car," "The Impunity of Power," "The Right to Rave," and "How to Resist Useless Vices." Reprint. 15,000 first printing.

In a series of mock lesson plans and a "program of study" Galeano provides an eloquent, passionate, funny and shocking expose of First World privileges and assumptions. From a master class in "The Impunity of Power" to a seminar on "The Sacred Car"--with tips along the way on "How to Resist Useless Vices" and a declaration of the "The Right to Rave"--he surveys a world unevenly divided between abundance and deprivation, carnival and torture, power and helplessness.
We have accepted a "reality" we should reject, he writes, one where poverty kills, people are hungry, machines are more precious than humans, and children work from dark to dark. In the North, we are fed on a diet of artificial need and all made the same by things we own; the South is the galley slave enabling our greed.
