From the Publisher"An important addition to existing literature in Cuban studies, and adds primary source, archival research to the continuing debates surrounding Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution."
— Latin Americanist
"Farber's analysis is complex and multilayered. . . . Farber has produced a fine synthesis, one that identifies key questions and offers fresh and compelling interpretations."
— Journal of American History
"This succinctly insightful study makes a tremendous contribution to understanding both the Cuban Revolution and the continuing inability of the US to understand and accept it. . . . Highly Recommended."
"One of the most useful works on the Cuban Revolution has appeared with Samuel Farber's The Origins of the Cuban Revolution Reconsidered. Its succinct, clearly-written, straightforward account draws widely on [a] range of primary and secondary sources, and also on the author's personal experience as someone who grew up in pre-revolutionary Cuba and who retains a connection with revolutionary socialist perspectives."
— Against the Current
"In writing Origins, Samuel Farber has not only set the record straight, but also he has made a contribution to 'those trying to create a new revolutionary and democratic Left in Cuba."
— International Socialist Review
"This is an excellent book. . . . It is a major contribution to the field of Cuban studies."
