Abstract: 
Eduardo Galeano's Faces and Masks is the second installation of his three-part trilogy documenting South American colonial history. Covering the 18th and 19th centuries, Galeano's collection of resources splices together events occurring throughout the continent, attempting to reveal the history's "multiple dimensions and penetrate its secrets." The "panoramic interpretation" of the New World allows the documents to speak for themselves, presenting ideas and thoughts, illustrating the vibrant atmosphere of the era. From writings of Toussaint L'Ouverture, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Karl Marx to "rebels", native songs and poetry, Faces and Masks links together the Old and New Worlds, presenting a wide collection of resources recounting the turbulent history.
