Fidel Castro Reader
Edited by David Deutschmann and Deborah Shnookal
Foreword by Felipe Pérez Roque
Fidel Castro has been an articulate and penetrating-if controversial-political thinker and leader, who has outlasted 10 hostile US presidents. With the wave of change now sweeping the continent, this book sheds light on Latin America's past as well as its future.
As the first selection of Fidel Castro's speeches to be published since the 1960s, this is an essential resource for both scholars and general readers.
Fidel’s devotion to the word is almost magical.
—Gabriel García Márquez
Fidel’s is a singing and dancing intellect… In Fidel, this passion is expressed in his priestly dedication to revolution.
Fidel Castro is a man of the masses… The Cuban revolution has been a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people.
Fidel is the leader of one of the smallest countries in the world, but he has helped to shape the destinies of millions of people across the globe.
