Brand New Book

This book provides a detailed analysis of the Cuban Revolution, its development and significance, and it presents a historical perspective on Cuba that arrives at new insights into social and political change.

From the rear side cover: This book sheds new light on the Cuban revolution. It also adds new dimensions to the traditional way in which fundamental social and political changes take place. Until the publication of this book the interpretation of the significance of the Cuban revolution and its development has been dominated by conservative, liberal and marxist scholars or observers. These commentators have been either highly critical or apologetic... and in every case they have ignored major segments of the history of Cuba. For the first time we have a book, the author of which is committed to social revolution [and anarchism], that gives a radically ne winterpretation of the history of modern Cuba by drawing on new research material. Chapters include:

  • Castro's friendly critics
  • The character of the Cuban revolution
  • The ideology of Spanish Anarchism
  • Anarchism in Cuba
  • The Batista era
  • Revolution in Perspective
  • Anonymous heroes of the Revolution
  • The Cuban revolution - eyewitness reports
  • Why the anarchists broke with Castro's regime
  • The position of the Cuban anarchists
  • Cuba in the late 1970's and 1980's
