Summary
  • Fidel's Cuba: A Revolution in Pictures reexamines Fidel Castro's storybook victory on its fortieth anniversary with black-and-white portraits of unforgettable power. Through the lenses of Osvaldo and Roberto Salas, Fidel's hand-picked photographers, the rich tapestry of the Revolution, its remarkable characters and events, is chronicled with an insider's closeness and a humanity unrivaled by any other book on Cuba. Over one hundred pictures - never before published in the United States - follow Castro from his early, clean-shaven days of raising money in Manhattan for the Revolution to the rugged Sierra Maestra mountains where he led his famed revolt with Che Guevara
  • Here is the infamous Bay of Pigs invasion in startling images of destruction; Ernest Hemingway and Fidel in their only meeting; and the proud faces of the Cubans, laboring in sugarcane fields and factories by day and in the throes of nocturnal ecstasy in Santeria rituals and all-night music festivals in the streets of Havana. Roberto Salas's reminiscences serve as extended captions for each photograph, taking readers up treacherous mountain passes with the revolutionaries, through cigar-smoke-filled back rooms with Fidel and Che, and onto the crisis-charged floor of the United Nations Assembly
