GORDON H. McCORMICK teaches political science and security studies at the US Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, where he also directs the Center on Terrorism and Irregular Warfare. A year ago, an Argentine and Cuban forensic team finally resolved a 30-year-old mystery, locating and exhuming the body of one of the twentieth century's most charismatic figures, Ernesto "Che" Guevara. On 9 October 1967, in the remote hamlet of La Higuera, the famous guerrilla leader had been executed following a disastrous attempt to duplicate in Bolivia the successes of the Cuban insurrection. The journey of Che Guevara, however, did not end in the Bolivian bush. In the wake of his death, he was resurrected to become a figure of heroic myth. To understand the source of this myth, one must reflect on the cultural roots of Che's odyssey, which originate several thousand years before he was born.
