Item description for Political Portraits: Fidel Castro reflects on famous figures in history by Fidel Castro & Eliades Acosta-matos...
A prominent figure himself on the world stage for fifty years, Fidel Castro offers some fascinating and perceptive comments on historical figures and some of his contemporaries, including: Nelson Mandela, Che Guevara, José Martí, Simón Bolívar, John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, Pablo Neruda, Gabriel García Márquez, Oswaldo Guayasamín, Ernest Hemingway, Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Joseph Stalin, and Jesus Christ.
With remarkable objectivity, and surprisingly little rancor or bitterness toward his foes, this selection offers as much insight into Fidel Castro as it does into those he discusses.
This is the perfect complement to other Ocean Press books by Fidel Castro, such as Fidel Castro Reader (Spring 2007), Fidel and Religion, and My Early Years. The book includes twelve pages of photographs of Fidel with some of the personalities he discusses here.
This title is also published in Spanish.
