summary È E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Martha Gellhorn And social issues and crises from a lynching in the American South in the 1930s through a recent visit to Cuba to see what is new and what remains the same in a country. I picked up Gellhorn knowing of her work alongside the Spanish Republicans and having heard that in this book she wrote about the US imperialist involvement in El Salvador Much of this book was written with the condescendingly 'benevolent' racism of the white liberal but it wasn't until her articles on the IsraeliPalestinian conflict that I almost put the book down for good Gellhorn is a rabid Zionist and horrifically Islamophobic The worst of it is outlined here I did force myself to finish the book and I was rewarded with idiotic reverse racism bilge in her essay on Haiti in which she repeatedly refers to herself as a 'white negro' Interestingly enough the El Salvador coverage I had been interested in wasn't Gellhorn's at all but the account of a tortured SalvadoreƱo taken down by the Commission of Human Rights in El Salvador That piece is the only part of the book I can recommend in good conscience
