Castro: Profiles in Power / Edition 2

Balfour's illuminating study is more than a personal biography, although it traces Castro's evolution from student leader to head of state. It analyses the peculiar historical conditions that enabled Castro to seize and maintain power, arguing that his popular appeal rested on a identification with a century-old struggle for national regeneration.
