The Worlds Within the World
Program #GALE001. Recorded in Santa Fe, NM on April 22, 1999.Within Latin America's thriving tradition of historical fiction and poetic journalism, no writer has chronicled as much of the last five centuries, nor with as much popular appeal, as Eduardo Galeano. His classic work The Open Veins of Latin America has sold over a million copies. It narrates the exploitation of innocents, from Columbus to the present. Like Howard Zinn's People's History of the United States, Galeano's Open Veins is prerequisite in the study of Latin American history from the bottom up. He is also the author of The Book of Embraces and the award-winning Memory of Fire trilogy. This program features Galeano receiving the Prize for Cultural Freedom from the Lannan Foundation in Santa Fe, New Mexico and an exclusive interview conducted by David Barsamian covering a range of topics: the role of the historian, the state of resistance movements and "el socialismo real," and a celebration of the "worlds within the world."
