Synopsis

In spite of all the propaganda, Cuba remains cloaked in mystery. What is the psychology of Fidel Castro, the man who has ruled for 40 years? How did he seize the reins of power, and how does he keep his grip? Who was Che Guevara, really? What was the Revolution really about? What was lost, and what was achieved? Who will take his place, once Fidel is gone? This book offers insights into all these questions, probing the heart of a passionate nation whose relations with the U.S. are making themselves felt. It is a journey to the heart of Cuba.
