AMERICA BETRAYED 1492-1992
“The Spaniards were overjoyed ... shooting their harquebuses, striking with their swords and spreading plague epidemics the ruthless group of conquerors of South America travelled about, greedy for gold like hungry swine.” (Nahuatl text)
Is Latin America a part of the world that is condemned to humiliation and poverty?

Has its misery not been caused by people, and can it thus be undone by people?
A history of murder, robbery and exploitation. A pictorial story, 1985.
