Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Liss, who has authored many works on Latin America, including a prior study of Cuban thought, offers an insightful, important contribution to Latin American intellectual history with this examination of Fidel Castro's philosophy. Basing his book on extensive research of Castro's writings and speeches, Liss interprets and documents Castro's views on a range of controversial topics while placing them in a larger comparative, international context. He offers interpretations of such topics as the intellectual influences on Castro's Marxist formation, his vision of a Cuban state, his assessments of international relations, his analysis of culture and human rights, and his position on race, religion, and gender. Highly recommended for academic collections.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best books i have read, and re-read. It provides the reader with an insight to the political and social thought of Fidel Castro as the title suggests as well as his role in modern world politics. This intriguing book is a most for all pro Castro supporters, anti-Castro critics and anybody interested in Fidel, the Cuban Revolution and political science
