Yes, I saw that book, There was an origional copy made back around
1973 by some South American Marxist group, I think.. mabye
it was Brazilian.  There has recently been a re-issuing of
the book (it has a note on the cover about its new edition
status).. I forget the exact name, but I flipped through it
a few times.  It looked pretty interesting, and intensly critical.
Full of alot of reproductions of panels by Carl Barks.

The cover has Uncle Scrooge with a face that has been replaced
by the continents of north and south America.  Kind of a strange
