The best book on the Cuban revolution I've ever read,
This review is from: Inside the Cuban Revolution: Fidel Castro and the Urban Underground (Hardcover)
This book, the best single book I've read explaining the Cuban revolution -- its roots and the people at its vanguard -- serves both the general interest reader and the regional specialist. It is extraordinarily illuminating and required reading for anyone who wants to understand both the Cuban revolution and its long-term consequences for American policy and hemispheric stability. A must-read for anyone who wants to visit Cuba or understand the tortured, 40-year relationship between Washington and Havana. As a Cuban exile who has long sought an unbiased understanding of my people's history -- and who has read every book there is to find, in Spanish and English -- on the subject of the revolution -- I commend Julia Swieg for her research and her unique story-telling ability.
