Library Journal - Library Journal
The thesis of these essays by mostly well-known authors is that economic and social progress under Castro have been very great; and such progress is attributed to Castro's revolutionary thinking, incorporating ideas from Marxism-Leninism and from class and geopolitical analyses. The essayists urge Castro to take on the next challenge, i.e., to open up the political realm to the masses. Although many of the essays were written for this volume, there is very little about Castro's choice of rectificacion (correcting the tendency toward more market-oriented socialism) as a global policy for Cuba, directly in contrast to Gorbachev's glasnost. Still, this is a good choice for collections on Cuba, revolution, and Marxism/Leninism. Rene Perez-Lopez, Virginia Wesleyan Coll. Lib., Norfolk
