Overview

With Guerrilla Prince, syndicated journalist Georgie Anne Geyer calls on her twenty-five years of experience covering Latin America to create an extraordinary biography that finally reveals the untold story of Fidel Castro. Based on hundreds of interviews with unique sources - including four extensive personal interviews with Castro - Guerrilla Prince is an intimate and revealing portrait, charged with all the electricity of the charismatic man himself. In this edition, Geyer adds a preface and an extensive epilogue to her 1991 hardcover text, addressing the changes since that time - the collapse of the Soviet Union, the internal unrest, and the growing anticipation of a post-Castro Cuba.

Geyer reveals the untold story of Fidel Castro, based on hundreds of interviews conducted over many years in 28 countries, including extensive personal interviews with Castro himself. A new preface and an epilogue incorporate all of the changes since the book's original 1991 publication. Photos.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Geyer's ambitious and revelatory, if somewhat feverish, biography of Fidel Castro presents the Cuban dictator as a personal and political failure, but as a military genius. Photos. (July)
Library Journal
Geyer, a syndicated journalist long familiar with Latin America and intrigued by Castro, has crafted a major biography of this enigmatic and fascinating figure. Her work differs from Ted Szulc's Fidel: A Critical Portrait ( LJ 1/15/87) in that it focuses on Castro's personality, on his personal rather than policy motivations, and offers a detailed psychological portrait. Geyer used some 900 interviews obtained over many years to document Castro's brutal treatment of thousands of Cubans and his fanatic hatred of the United States. The reader is left with a persuasive picture of a paranoid, erratic megalomaniac, whose personal life is a microcosm of his public behavior. Highly recommended.-- Roderic A. Camp, Central Coll., Pella, Ia.
Booknews
A flashy, gossipy journalistic biography for those more interested in Castro's paramours than in his policies. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Outstanding, by far Castro's best biography

    The title says it all. Guerilla Prince is one of the best if not the best biography written about el comandante. The author did not potrait Fidel as the evil dictator that every one thinks he is. She relates well all his accomplishments as well as his mistakes. She also describes in depht the revolution and the essance of it. Thought I didn't share with some of her opinions, it's easy to see that she put an extremly amount of time and effort into her book. I recommend this book to some of the Cubans who don't have pride in the revolution and what Fidel Castro did.
