El mundo esta patas arriba, con tantos helicopteros blancos que rompen escuelas en los cuatro puntos cardinales En este mundo parado sobre su cabeza, el dinero es el unico al que nadie expulsa y al que nadie destrata por extranjero Los humanos, en cambio, somos siempre sospechosos, y corremos el riesgo de ser tratados peor que una peste invasora Eduardo Galeano

Eduardo Galeano’s Open Veins of Latin America, describing 500 years of brutalization and exploitation of the peoples, lands and resources of Latin America by Europeans and North Americans makes for tough reading. Upside Down, A Primer for the Looking-Glass World, on the other hand, takes hard-to-swallow subjects such as racism, sexism, corporate manipulation, government betrayal, workplace dehumanization, brainwashing of children, environmental poisoning, systematic jailing, torture and murder [...]

This goes on and on and on and on about what is wrong with the world today, and yesterday, and its grim prospects tomorrow, the seeming hopelessness of the future so that there was a point where I felt I couldn't take it anymore, shocked that I live in this planet, and looked at my two children as mistakes. I felt my whole being weakening, like I was in an onset of a fatal food poisoning that will lead to my death in a couple of hours.A world turned upside down. A relentless, cruel oration expla [...]

Ο Γκαλεάνο ειχε πει κάποτε σε συνέντευξή του: «Έχουμε κόψει τη μνήμη σε κομμάτια και γράφω προσπαθώντας να ανακτήσω την αληθινή μας μνήμη, τη μνήμη της ανθρωπότητας που είχε ακρωτηριαστεί από αλαζονεία, από ρατσισμό, από τον μιλιταρισμό και πολλούς άλλους «ισμούς», που σκό [...]

Η ανάπτυξηΜια γέφυρα δίχως ποτάμι.Ψηλές προσόψεις κτιρίων δίχως τίποτε από πίσω.Ο κηπουρός ποτίζει το πλαστικό γρασίδι.Κυλιόμενες σκάλες που δεν οδηγούν πουθενά.Ο αυτοκινητόδρομς που μας δίνει τη δυνατότητα να γνωρίσουμε τόπους, που εξαιτίας του έχουν καταστραφεί.Η οθόν [...]

Estoy empezando a considerar a Galeano como autor favorito. Tercer libro que leo de él en el año y vuelve a dejarme con la boca abierta. Escribe tan precioso (llené el libro de post-it) y te parte el corazón en mil pedazos. ¿De verdad todas estas cosas horribles pasaron, de verdad siguen pasando? Aunque sí admito que la última parte se me hizo ya medio repetitiva y un poco cansadora, pero es una lectura para tomarse con calma y leer con pañuelos a mano. Vamos por más del autor."Desde lo [...]

As other reviewers have noted, Galeano doesn't provide footnotes to back up his assertions, which makes this book a rant and not a treatise. It is a breathtaking rant, though, with language as beautiful as the world it describes is ugly. Plus, Galeano does provide a list of sources at the end, if the reader needs further convincing that Galeano's description of the "Looking-Glass world" is spot-on.Here are some of Galeano's own words:The "killer instinct" is an essential ingredient for getting a [...]

Das Kapital'i çağdaş bir şair yazsaydı bu kitap ortaya çıkardı diye düşündüm. Çok güzel.- Adalet de tıpkı yılanlar gibi, yalnızca çıplak ayaklıları ısırıyor.- Yeni açılan bir köprü çöktüğünde, içi boşaltılan bir banka battığında, çimentosuz inşa edilen bir bina yıkıldığında kimsenin hapse girmediği ülkelerde yalnızca yoksullar cezaevine girer.- Küçük soygun özel mülkiyete karşı işlenmiş bir suç, büyük soygun mülk sahiplerinin hakkı.

Ο ανεστραμμένος κόσμος του Eduardo Galeano δεν είναι άλλος από τον κόσμο γύρω μας, όπου οι διακρίσεις είναι ο κανόνας, ο άνθρωπος αξιολογείται με κριτήριο το χρώμα, τη φυλή και το φύλο του, οι γυναίκες, οι έγχρωμοι, οι ιθαγενείς ινδιάνοι και όλοι όσοι διαφέρουν από το στερεότυπο του [...]

Terminar de leer el libro me dejó el deseo de escuchar más a Eduardo Galeano. Hay un conocimiento y sabiduría documentada detrás de cada oración(basta ver la cantidad de libros consultados por cada artículo del libro). Además de la crítica al sistema y la claridad e inteligencia de pensamiento. Así, llega a reúnir frases que consiguen una reflexión al término de su lectura. Sí, citas o frases célebres que valen la pena escuchar. Pondré dos:"Lo mejor que el mundo tiene está en los [...]

Journalist, historian, poet, author — there is no other writer whose style is comparable to that of Eduardo Galeano. The Uruguayan penner, best known for his acclaimed Memory of Fire trilogy, further indicts our culture of privilege in Upside Down. Comprised of a series of illuminating vignettes, Galeano, with his trademark wit, sarcasm, and adroit phrasings, turns his unerring critique onto the vapidity and shallowness of our modern world. Whether decrying violence, consumerism, ecological de [...]

Καταπληκτικός Απορώ πώς δεν τον είχα ανακαλύψει νωρίτερα.

This is definitely good if you want a reminder of how unjust and brutal the world is, with the focus on Latin America. Money and power rule, and woe to those that get in the way, or even woe to those that don't "add value." I thought perhaps this would be a good quicker substitution for his Open Veins, and perhaps it is, but the loose format and rant-style is not what I prefer. It's a bit depressing, too, and he doesn't present many specific causal facts, just the more broad descriptives of a wo [...]

Cuesta creer que hayan pasado 17 años desde la publicación de este libro, y que todavía su vigencia resulte tan terriblemente devastadora. La denuncia lírica que impregna las líneas de este ensayo es perfectamente aplicable a nuestros días, en los que la violencia y la desigualdad son aún mayores, si cabe. Debido a la crisis económica actual, uno tiene la sensación de que estamos peor que nunca, pero al leer Patas arriba, es fácil darse cuenta que la corrupción, el egoísmo, la codici [...]

Μόλις τελείωσα το πρώτο βιβλίο για το 2017 και νομίζω δεν του αξίζει τίποτα λιγότερο από πέντε αστέρια. Σε επίπεδο γραφής, ο Γκαλεάνο δεν θυμίζει σε καμία των περιπτώσεων το στυφό, αυστηρό και δοκιμιακό ύφος αντίστοιχων κειμενικών ειδών και παρουσιάζει γεγονότα, σκέψεις και [...]

Galeano offers us this devastating reflection of how today's world seems to be constructed from an upside down perspective, where people's main nurture comes from fear and how the system manipulates masses into thinking there is no other way around, as this is how "it has always been", in terms of injustice, consumption, predation of nature, racism, male domineering, dependence to machines and mass media power. Anyone who prides himself/herself on having critical thought, has to read this book. [...]

En resumen: Tremendo libro!!!!No sé por dónde empezar. Hacía mucho tiempo que no leía algo que me marcara tanto, de un forma tan cruda. Siempre me gustó la escritura de Galeano, pero no había leído aún este libro. La claridad con la que expresó las problemáticas de 1998, no solo es a la vez cruda y poética, sino que también sigue vigente al día de hoy, casi 20 años después.Si tuviera que elegir "la frase que más me gustó", no podría, porque cada frase es una puñalada al coraz [...]

Excelente libro que escaló hasta mis favoritos.La escritura más denunciante de Galeano que leí hasta el momento, por eso me resultó muy importante entrar con la cabeza muy abierta. Tarde en leerlo, porque me causó mucho dolor leer cosas tan crudas y hubo momentos en los que necesite parar. Esto no lo hace menos excelente, sino más impactante, por lo menos para mi. También hubo cierto momento en el que se me tornó un cachitin denso, por el hecho de que se trataba de la parte automotriz la [...]

20-30 sayfalık bir kaynakçaya sahip olan, dünya üzerinde yapılan adaletsizlikleri tek tek anlatan değeri büyük bir kitap. Çok akıcı, keskin cümlelerle izah ediliyor sorunlar. Yoksullar, suçlular, kapitalizm ve komünizm, devrimler, rejim değişiklikleri Daha sayamadığım birçok konuya samimiyetle değinilmiş. Çocuk istismarı, kadınlara davranış, dayak, hırsızlık, ahlaksızlık, kültürel değerlerin yıkılması gibi günümüzün en önemli konuları da sebepleriyle a [...]

"Open Veins of Latin America" is better. Galeano is still brilliant but quite a bit too strident in this book, with all these unsupported, radical assertions (which i fully believe, but skeptics will just scoff) about the horrors the powerful exert on the poor. Strangely enough I have a used copy once owned by at least 1 student - I frankly am baffled as to why a professor would assign this book for some class full of clueless college sophomores. Much better to start with "Open Veins" or somethi [...]

Not because I loved it. Upside down was not nice at all. It's like taking all journalists' cynicism and rolling it up in a giant ball then rolling it towards the reader. Eduardo is a very intelligent writer from Uruguay who "LOVES" politics and was so very disgusted with the world when this was written. The sentiments spread after having read it. Scary good. Read at your own peril

Galeano fiel a su estilo, muy interesante y completo. Toca todos los temas que a una persona pensante deberían inquietar (consumismo, medios de comunicación, recursos naturales, etc) y los analiza desde un enfoque muy original. Por momentos algo denso, pero vale la pena.

A real reflect of the world where we are living

Prometo que lo he intentado, pero desisto. Me gusta el estilo de Galeano y lo que escribió en aquel momento, pero no me convence que sea un libro que envejece mal (escrito en 1998), con tantos datos estadísticos de entonces. Soy consciente que aquellos problemas de corrupción, miedo, violencia, racismo, machismo, etc. siguen siendo temas de rabiosa actualidad, pero ese goteo de anécdotas contemporáneas de cuando se escribió, hacen que me suenen lejanas y me impidan entrar en el ensayo. El [...]

Esse livro me trouxe a lembrança da primeira vez que assisti aos documentários Zeitgeist. Eduardo Galeano traz uma série de ensaios - todos com referência de fontes consultadas - a respeito de temas como injustiça social e sua extrema ligação com a política - parece o óbvio, mas tem gente que acredita que pobreza é uma coisa natural, é assim porque é - globalização, filhadaputice dos EUA, televisão e fabricação de notícias, entre outros. O livro foi concluído em 1998 e eu não [...]

Galeano, kadın - erkek ayrımından, ırkçı yaklaşımlara; eğitimden - fırsat eşitsizliğine, her konuda yaşanan terslikleri ortaya koymuşEğitimde beyin yıkayan modelleri, çevre kirliliğini, devletlerin yalanlarını , özel sektörün acimasizliginı, işkence, cinayet gibi olayları kara mizah anlayışı ile alan Tersine Dünya Okulu, çarpıcı örnekleri, tasarımı, üslubu ile tekrar tekrar okunabilecek bir kitap"ikinci kadeh şarap ve ilk öpüşmeye kadar hepimiz ölümlüy [...]

Kitap her ne kadar 1998 yilinda tamamlanmis olsa da dusunceleri gunumuzde hala gecerliligini koruyor. Gunumuz toplumu hakkinda farkindalik yaratan ve sislerin icine gomulmus gercekleri bize gostermeye calisiyor. Birkac okunmasi gereken muhtesem bir kitap

""Yazar bu kitabı yazmayı 1998 Ağustos'unda bitirdi. Devamını öğrenmek istiyorsanız her gün haberleri okuyun, dinleyin ya da seyredin"Kusursuz bir dünya tarihi. Eduardo Galeano'nun okuduğum en sert, en çarpıcı kitabı. Kitabın başından sırtımda koca bir yükle, yürekte bir ızdırapla kalktım.

2017 really isnt that much different than the year, 1998, this book was published, at least from the perspective of Galeano's South

I picked this book up for a dollar at a used book sale, not really knowing what to expect. I really loved this book, and it made me want to add a lot of other books about Latin American history to my reading list. For a book that discusses such awful events and persistent inequality there were some very darkly funny moments I wasn't expecting.

Galeano's Upside Down evokes as many emotions as there are problems in the world. The cleverly written book at times can make the reader pull out one's hair in frustration and cry in the hopelessness of the world we live in. He doesn't write what many people already don't know but he states what many of us fear to acknowledge and fear is the primary theme of the book. We live in a fearful society that fears everything including "foreigners," neighbours, food, water, air, economy, wealth or lack [...]
