Henry Butterfield Ryan is a retired foreign service officer, an associate of Georgetown University's Institute for the Study of Diplomacy, and the author of The Fall of Che Guevara. He lives in Washington, D. C.
James has not only gone through the many anecdotal articles which
have appeared over the years in Argentine, Mexican, and Cuban
periodicals but has also spoken at length with Che's first wife.
The strongest parts of the book are the initial chapters with
sketch Guevara's family background and the Argentina in which he
grew to maturity... * Library Journal *

What makes James's book interesting is that it gives readers not only a glimpse of a political attitude from the 1960s that is often overlooked, but also a view of Guevara that they will not get elsewhere. James's biography was, and remains, remarkable because of its point of view. He was frankly out to debunk Guevara's Myth. -- Henry Butterfield Ryan, from the Introduction
