One of Latin America’s most acclaimed voices, Eduardo Galeano, died on Monday at age 74 in his home in Montevideo, Uruguay. The Uruguayan novelist, journalist, and champion of human rights and social justice, is the author of the classic book "The Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent," published in 1971.  He is also the author of several books that for decades inspired humanists and human rights activists interested in reshaping the political landscapes of Latin America.

His classic trilogy "Memory of Fire," reconstructs five centuries of North and South American history. He also authored "Soccer in Sun and Shadow," "Upside Down," "The Book of Embraces," "We Say No," "Voices of Time," "Mirrors," "Children of the Days: A Calendar of Human History," amongst others.

Galeano received numerous international awards and prizes during his life for his work. Read Eduardo Galeano, Uruguayan Voice of Anti-Capitalism, Is Dead at 74. (New York Times)
