Description: Since Alma Guillermoprieto became Latin American correspondent for The New Yorker a decade ago, she has emerged as the most highly regarded writer on the region. In these superb essays she anatomizes a world we are intimately linked with yet sadly ignorant of.

Cuba: a nation in an exhausting holding pattern waiting for Castro's departure but anxious about who and what will replace him. Colombia: fatally splintered among the government, the left-wing guerrillas who control much of the nation -- and much of the drug trade -- and the right-wing paramilitaries. Mexico: becoming a real democracy for the first time, but beset by the uprising in Chiapas and by governmental corruption. And Guillermoprieto recounts as well the stories of Eva Peron and her Argentina, of Che Guevara and the abortive Marxist insurgency in South America, and of Mario Vargas Llosa, the Peruvian novelist who lost a valiant battle for the presidency to Alberto Fujimori.

Looking for History is rigorously observant and deeply empathetic -- a work of brilliant reportage and analysis.
