Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The "History Firsthand" series is designed to offer readers a set of interviews, articles, and editorials written by people actually involved in the subject at hand. In this title in the series, editor Carley has included a fascinating selection of sources dealing with Fidel Castro and his people. Readers of this study can review the thoughts of Che Gueverra regarding the Cuban economy. Speeches by Castro provide a flavor of the leader's ideas and style. Interviews with elderly Cubans offer insights into how some everyday citizens of that nation feel about their leader. All in all, Castro's Cuba paints a balanced picture of a nation that overthrew a terrible dictatorship and then installed a revolutionary government that has doggedly held on to power for fifty years. In a day and age when it is easier to propagandize about a subject than critically analyze it, this book affords readers a chance to learn a great deal about an enigmatic topic. However, due to the advanced nature of the book's presentation, this publication is far more suited to a serious reader or a course dedicated to the detailed study of the subject. 2004, Thomson Gale, Ages 16 up.
—Greg M. Romaneck
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-Through the use of interviews, articles, and first-person narratives, this book focuses on the significance of the 1959 revolution and its aftermath. An extensive introduction explaining events precipitating the rise of Fidel Castro, the revolution, and the current situation in Cuba provides readers with a necessary overview to understand the succeeding chapters. Each section presents historical documents, narratives, and articles by famous people such as Castro himself and Che Guevara as well as pieces by visiting journalists and interviews with ordinary citizens. A few black-and-white photos and maps are included.-Doris Losey, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library, Tampa, FL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
