The phenomenon of Fidel Castro's rise to power, his impact on the world stage as a revolutionary leader, and, thirty years later, the collapse of what he sought to achieve, is an extraordinary story. Cuba now stands at the edge of history; it would be hard to find a more vibrant record of Cuba's position than the voices of Cubans themselves. During four years in Havana and in the U.S., Lynn Geldof conducted thirty-two conversations with Cubans who stayed, those who fled, and experts on Cuban policy.
A work of incisive journalism, Cubans presents a unique range of views. A chronology of major events in Cuban history and a list of further reading add to its value as a truly history document.
