Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up-- Beyer presents an unsympathetic portrait of his subject, focusing on his early life and rise to power. Little space is devoted to his social and economic reforms, although Cuba's "bad neighbor policy" receives attention. Castro emerges as audacious, combative, and highly volatile; he appears as a schoolboy who curses his teachers, a Marxist who defies the U. S. Viewing the Cuban leader's contribution to his country as nebulous, the author concludes that with Castro's demise, Cuba will become either a monument to his ideals or "the tombstone of another messiah without scruples." Quotations add authenticity to the text. Most of the 25 black-and-white photographs are of above-average quality. This is a detailed and readable biography, but not so objective as Judith Bentley's eminently fair Fidel Castro (Messner, 1991), written for a similar audience. --Pat Katka, San Diego Public Library
