Overview:
Fidel Castro is perhaps the most charismatic and controversial head of state in 
modern times. A dictatorial pariah to some, he has become a hero and inspiration
for many of the world's poor, defiantly charting an independent and revolutionary
path for Cuba over nearly half a century. Numerous attempts have been made to get
Castro to tell his own story. But only now, in the twilight of his years, has he
been prepared to set out the details of his remarkable biography for the world to
read. This book is nothing less than his living testament. In these pages, Castro
narrates a compelling chronicle that spans the harshness of his elementary school
teachers; the early failures of the revolution; his intense comradeship with Che
Guevara and their astonishing, against-all-odds victory over the dictator Batista;
the Cuban perspective on the Bay of Pigs and the ensuing missile crisis; the active
role of Cuba in African independence movements (especially its large military involvement
in fighting apartheid South Africa in Angola); his relations with prominent public
figures such as Boris Yeltsin, Pope John Paul II, and Saddam Hussein; and his dealings
with no less than ten successive American presidents, from Eisenhower to George 
W. Bush. Drawing on more than one hundred hours of interviews with Ignacio Ramonet,
a knowledgeable and trusted interlocutor, this spoken autobiography will stand as
the definitive record of an extraordinary life lived in turbulent times.
