reviews / comptes rendus / 223 political radicalization, which happened relatively late. As Zolov reminds us, at the time Guevara arrived in Mexico to finally join the Cuban revolutionary movement, he was still more concerned with escaping married life and sudden fatherhood rather than involvement in left-wing politics. (246) Historians will also find appealing the excellent sections in each essay on Guevara's legacy, as revolutionary Che, in Latin America in the 1960s and 1970s. This influence did not play only at the level of international relations, the Cold War, and national politics, but also at those of popular culture and experience. This is nicely captured, for example, by the essays on Venezuela, Guatemala, and Bolivia, which point out the material and symbolic elements that made Che a popular figure for vast sectors of the population. This articulation of politics, culture, and personal experience is connected to recent studies on Latin American cultural history such as Gil Joseph's edited volumes on the cultural Cold War in Latin America, Lauren Derby's study of the Trujillato in Dominican Republic, and Matthew Karush and Oscar Chamosa's edited book on the cultural history of Peronism.
