Book Review: "José Martí y la cuestión indígena" by Jorge Camacho The greatest reverence that can be shown to any historical figure is to desire to know everything about him. The most faithful biographer is the one who provides the most complete picture of his subject, not the myth-maker or repeater of the accepted pieties who wishes us to. Abstract As an introduction to early national Cuban history, The Myth of José Martí is a valuable and accessibly written account that offers new insight into the variety of Cuban nationalisms at the beginning of the twentieth-century. Guerra’s commitment to continuously and consistently exploring the “view from below” makes her book particularly rewarding.
