Overview

La historia de la Revolucion cubana se ha escrito muchas veces desde distintos angulos. Igual sucede con la biografia de Fidel Castro. Tambien son innumerables los analisis sobre aspectos parciales de este largo episodio historico. Sin embargo, este libro, Viaje al corazon de Cuba, intenta algo mucho mas ambicioso: hacer la sintesis total; contar la historia, encontrar las razones y las causas que la explican, describir los rasgos psicologicos de los protagonistas y hacer el juicio critico de lo que alli ha acontecido. Y, como se trata de un proceso inconcluso, la obra culmina con un inquietante epilogo en el que el autor se atreve a predecir que ocurrira en la Isla cuando Fidel Castro desaparezca.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Montaner starts his biography of Fidel Castro noting that of all living political figures Castro stimulates the most interest. He ends the book with an epilog portraying Castro's hypothetical death and the subsequent decommunization of Cuba. Castro has been simply a disaster for Cuba. Interested in power for its own sake; devoid of loyalty to anything except his own conceptions and place in power; uncomfortable around those who grapple with ideas, such as Che Guevara, Castro has depended on charisma, fear, and Soviet support. In the last decade, Soviet support has ceased, his charisma has diminished, and fear has taken up the slack. Montaner paints an unchanged Castro and sketches the damage that this has caused his fellow Cubans: the exodus, the hunger, the prostitution, the poverty. A corroborating read for those who oppose Castro and a necessary one for those who don't.--John P. Farrance Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
