by Fidel Castro, Edited by David Deutschmann
Gabriel García Márquez described Fidel Castro as the "master of the spoken word." After leading an audacious revolutionary movement on the tiny island of Cuba, Fidel Castro became a prominent spokesperson of the anti-colonial struggle and a penetrating political thinker and leader on the world stage. Surviving numerous assassination attempts and outlasting eleven US administrations, Castro lived to see Washington finally acknowledge the futility of the aggressive policy adopted against Cuba for over fifty years.
""Fidel's devotion to the word is almost magical." --Gabriel García Márquez
"Fidel Castro is a man of the masses... The Cuban revolution has been a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people." --Nelson Mandela
