In spite of all the propaganda, Cuba remains cloaked in mystery. What is the psychology of Fidel Castro, the man who has ruled for 40 years? How did he seize the reins of power, and how does he keep his grip? Who was Che Guevara, really? What was the Revolution really about? What was lost, and what was achieved? Who will take his place, once Fidel is gone? This book offers insights into all these questions, probing the heart of a passionate nation whose relations with the U.S. are making themselves felt. It is a journey to the heart of Cuba.

From the Publisher:

The history of the Cuban Revolution has been written many times, from many angles - and so has the biography of Fidel Castro. This book aims at a much more ambitious goal: to provide a total synthesis; to recount the history, to find the roots and the causes that explain it, to describe the psychological traits of the protagonists and to draw a critical assessment.

It's far more than an "ethnic" issue. US-Cuban relations are about to enter a new era, and everyone is jockeying for position; even the US elections were affected. "Elian" was just the latest episode in the propaganda wars. 1. A Portrait of the Young Fidel Castro 2. A Bit of Background 3. The Insurrection 4. And Here's . . . Communism! 5. The Ends, the Means, and the Achievements 6. The Other Shore 7. Epilogue: The Day Fidel Castro Died 8. Bibliography 9. Names Index
