Eduardo Galeano, author of the incomparable Memory of Fire trilogy, combines a novelist's
intensity, a poet's lyricism, a journalist's fearlessness, and the strong judgments of an engaged
historian. Now his talents are richly displayed in Upside Down, an eloquent, passionate, sometimes
hilarious expos of our first-world privileges and assumptions. In a series of lesson plans and a
"program of study" about our beleaguered planet, Galeano takes the reader on a wild trip through
the global looking glass. 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
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, Galeano teaches
us, one where machines are more precious than humans, people are hungry, poverty kills, and
children toil from dark to dark.
A work of fire and charm, Upside Down makes us see the world anew and even glimpse how it
might be set right.
