‘Socialism and Man in Cuba’
by Che published in Greece
ATHENS, Greece—Socialism and Man in Cuba was recently published in Greek by the Athens-based publisher Diethnes Vima. The book contains Che Guevara’s 1965 article by that title as well as two other pieces by Guevara, “Planning and Consciousness in the Transition to Socialism” and “Voluntary Work Is a School for Communist Consciousness.” It also contains Fidel Castro’s 1987 speech, “Che’s Ideas Are Absolutely Relevant Today.”

With the capitalist crisis shaking Greece, the new book has fallen on receptive ears.

The book will be launched at a public meeting here Jan. 22, sponsored by Diethnes Vima and the Embassy of Cuba.

A review of the book was published in Prin, a “newspaper of the independent left.”

Volunteers in Athens and in northern Greece launched a two-month campaign to get the book out.

Seventy-eight copies of the book have been ordered so far by 14 bookstores in Athens, Thessaloniki and Patra.

An additional 10 copies were ordered by bookstores and a distributor in Cyprus as a result of a sales team’s visit to the island on Dec. 3 and 4. The team also got orders for another 45 titles, 20 of which were for Che Guevara Talks to Young People. Twenty-one copies of the new book have been picked up at strike actions and political events.
