Editorial Reviews

Review

“From childhood rebellion to international confrontation, Coltman’s analysis of this obstinate and aggressive politician remains clear and impressively impartial.”—Observer


“[Coltman] has produced a rare commodity—a balanced view of Castro. . . . Very well-written and easily read.”—Anthony Daniels, Sunday Telegraph


“One of the most striking revelations of . . . Coltman’s engrossing study of the Cuban leader is just how central violence has always been to [Castro’s] life. . . . Meticulously researched and compiled . . . [and] fascinating material.”—Justin Marozzi, Literary Review

About the Author
