About this Item

156 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.0in. x 0.4in.Based on historical facts lifted from Castros speeches published in the official Cuban newspaper, Granma, Grave de Peralta, in a most direct, matter of fact way, presents a devastating image of Castros regime. We can see that the fate of Cuba since 1959 is a reflection of the real nature of Castro. He was a gangster from the beginning and will be to the end. His Mafia-type regime took over a highly successful developing country that during the first half century of its independence made extraordinary progress in all fields. Over the forty-three years of Castro, Cuba has steadily declined to the levels of Haiti and Bangladesh. Grave de Peralta exposes that Castros Cuba is structured and operates as a large-scale organized crime operation as it assumes the wealth of the country while taking advantage of family relations and needs. Castro and his Mafia dont care about the welfare of the people. They care about extorting the monies to stay in power to perpetuate their personal privileges. It is frightening that a regime like this has been thriving for over four decades and ninety miles from the United States. And frightening how ignorant and insensitive the American public has been kept by the United States. media and academic circles about the real nature of Castros regime revealed in this simple little book. Concluding, Grave de Peralta says, According to Castro, he is a saint. According to his oppositors, he is another communist tyrant. According to stubborn historical facts, Fidel Castro, is actually a Mafioso. After reading this book, we will see Castros Cuba in a totally different light, perhaps the truest and easiest to understand depiction of his destructive effect on Cuban society.

About the Author:

Born in November 1957, in the eastern city of Holguin, Luis Grave de Peralta Morell was president of the official Castro government University Student Federation of the Physics-Chemistry-Mathematics Faculty at the University of Oriente, where he graduated as a Physicist in 1982.He was Professor of Theoretic Physics and Biophysics at that university until 1989, when he was expelled from the faculty after his voluntary resignation from the Cuban Communist Party.In 1992, he was apprehended and accused of 'rebellion through pacific means' for being the author of the book manuscript Cuban Themes or Recreative Dialectic. Because of this unpublished manuscript, he was sentenced to thirteen years in a maximum-security prison.After four years, in 1996, thanks to an international effort to gain his release along with other political prisoners, he was deported directly from jail to the United States in an U.S. Air Force plane. In exile, he resumed his work as a scientist and in 2000, he received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Texas Tech University.In 1997, his book The Magic of Love, a collection of short stories written for his children from his jail cell, was published in Mexico. Grave de Peralta decided to make these stories public as part of his tireless effort for over six years to gain freedom for his sons and for his family reunification, which had been prevented by the Cuban government.In 2001, his second book, The Mafia of Havana, was published in Spanish with a cover designed by his son, Gabriel.Grave de Peralta lives in Lubbock, Texas with his older son Gabriel, his Cuban wife, Mara, and his younger son, Cesar, who finally arrived from Cuba on November 16, 2001.
