Description

This history text provides a fresh interpretation, based on extensive research in original sources, of Cuban-American relations in the 1950s, which climaxed in the 1959 triumph of Fidel Castro and the establishment of the Cuban Revolution. It catalogues the failures of US government policies, and describes how these failures paved the way for Castro's success.show more
