Synopsis:

“This startling book is based on ... conversations between the Cuban leader and a Brazilian priest. The talk is informal and far-ranging, and Betto's questions are often provocative (‘Does Cuba export revolution?’).”—Publishers Weekly

The product of an intimate 23-hour dialogue between Fidel Castro and Brazilian liberation theologist Frei Betto, this was a Simon & Schuster bestseller in the 1980s. Here Castro speaks candidly about his views on religion and his education in elite Catholic colleges, offering an insight into the man behind the beard.

Features a new translation and a unique selection of photos of Fidel as a boy.

About the Author: Fidel Castro led a guerrilla movement in Cuba that overthrew the Batista dictatorship in 1959. Since then, the Cuban president has been the nemesis of ten U.S. administrations. He stepped down in 2007 but has regularly expressed his views on world events and political personalities in his famous "reflections." Frei Betto is a Brazilian priest, who worked with the internationally renowned Brazilian educator, Paolo Freire, and later organized Christian base communities. Recently he has been a adviser to the Lula government in Brazil on social policy. He is a widely acclaimed liberation theologist and a prominent spokesperson at the World Social Forum on globalization issues. Armando Hart was an underground activist in the struggle against the Batista dictatorship in Cuba. He was named as minister of education in the revolutionary government and led the nationwide literacy campaign. Later (1976-97) he became minister of culture. He is the author of numerous essays, articles and books on culture and cultural policy, history and social development

The product of an intimate 23-hour dialogue between Fidel Castro and Brasilian liberation theologist Frei Betto, Fidel and Religion was a Simon Schuster bestseller in the 1980s.

Castro speaks candidly about his views on religion and his education in elite Catholic colleges, his conversation with Betto taking on the larger aspect of a historic dialogue between the two most powerful forces for social change in human history.In Castro and Betto s conversation, the communion between these two forces is such that in 1992 it was used as the basis for the Cuban Communist Party s decree that members who practised religious faiths could be accepted - and, in 1999, it paved the way for Pope John Paul II s historic visit to the country.
