    Telling It Like It Is

    This book is must reading for those who wish to understand the reason U.S. rulers for more than 40 years have sought to subvert, destablize, and overthrow the Cuban Revolution. It includes talks by central leaders of the first socialist revolution in the Americas given at the United Nations General Assembly -- two by Fidel Castro in 1960 and 1979 and one by Che Guevara in 1964. Both Fidel and Che get to the heart of the matter: the incessant battle between the majority of people in the semi-colonies, workers and farmers of all countries, alongside the workers states on one side and the monopoly capitalist businesses and their governments on the other. The words of Che and Fidel are powerful, as are the photographs included in the book. We see Fidel with Malcolm X, asserting his rights in face of a New York cop, Fidel with Grenada Prime Minister Maurice Bishop, and others.

    Cuba at the United Nations

    The United Nations has often been used as a political platform to demand, announce, and defend U.S. policies throughout the world. That¿s what we usually see in the press about the international body. However, in this book, we get another picture of how political leaders used the forum of the United Nations to describe their country¿s view of the world and revolutionary Cuba¿s place in it. There are four speeches: two from Che Guevara and two from Fidel Castro over a period of almost twenty years. From the early days of the Cuban Revolution, in 1960, Fidel speaks of the mistreatment and attacks by the U.S. government and media on the Cuban delegation to the U.N. Che speaks frankly and openly about the U.N. forces and the debacle in the Congo. Castro, in 1979, speaks for the Movement of the Nonaligned Countries before the U.N. ¿on behalf of the children of the world who do not even have a piece of bread.¿ Again, with honesty and clarity, he takes on the unequal relations between the industrialized world and the developing countries, demanding an end of the super-exploitation of the poor nations. The speeches are easy to read, understand, and the book has excellent footnotes to elaborate on points made ( usually some historical information is included.) Highly recommended for those looking for answers to why the United States government has, and always will, despise the revolutionary Cuban government.
