Summary: In the tradition of Joan Didion and Ryzsard Kapuscinski comes a collection of essays and reportage by Alma Guillermoprieto, perhaps our most perceptive writer about Latin America. Guillermoprieto, who contributes regularly to The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books, explores the three Latin American countries most important to the United States right now: Cuba, Mexico, and Colombia. Guillermoprieto can write with such acumen and sympathy about statesmen and campesinos, leftist revolutionaries and right-wing militias, and political figures from Fidel Castro to Vicente Fox. Combining the passion and deep knowledge of an insider with the detachment of a seasoned veteran, Looking for History offers a portrait of this beguiling and crucial part of the world.
