Journey to the heart of Cuba : life as Fidel Castro by Carlos Alberto Montaner( )

28 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 2,697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In spite of all the propaganda, Cuba remains cloaked in mystery. What is the psychology of Fidel Castro, the man who has ruled for 40 years? How did he seize the reins of power, and how does he keep his grip? Who was Che Guevara, really? What was the Revolution really about? What was lost, and what was achieved? Who will take his place, once Fidel is gone? This book offers insights into all these questions, probing the heart of a passionate

"Perhaps the foremost social analyst and journalist on Cuban affairs, Carlos Alberto Montaner has written a definitive study of the Cuban regime from the vantage point of the Cuban dictator. This is not simply a history of Cuban communism but rather a personal history of its leader, Fidel Castro. Montaner's extraordinary knowledge of the country and its politics prevents the work from becoming a psychiatric examination from afar. Indeed, what personal irrationalities exist are seen as built into the fabric of the regime itself, and not simply as a personality aberration.Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution is not an apologia for past United States involvement in Cuban affairs. The author is severe in his judgments of such participation. Nor is he sparing in his sense of the betrayal of the original purposes of the Revolution of 1959 manifested in the character and policies of Fidel Castro. As the work progresses from a study of the victims to a study of the beneficiaries of the Cuban Revolution, it leaves the reader with a deep sense of the tragedy of a revolution betrayed, but not one that could have easily been avoided.Montaner is an ""exile"" like the great Alexander Herzen before him. His decision to live in Europe was made by choice, not of necessity. He sees his role as critical analyst, not as restoring the status quo ante. A most valuable aspect of this book is its intimate reevaluation of Fulgencio Batista. Whatever the reader's judgment of Montaner's work, no one can read it and be dismissive of the effort. It is a work of intimacy even through written in exile--and hence must be viewed as an important effort to understand the character of the man and regime who have changed the course of Cuban history in our times."--Provided by publisher

Three disillusioned ex-leftists target many of Latin America's traditionally heroic icons, such as Castro, Che Guevara, Simón Bolívar, and the "popular church."

El regreso del idiota by Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza( Book )

20 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El idiota está de vuelta, sus ideas nacionalistas y populistas resurgen en América Latina y obtienen la bendición de no pocos europeos y norteamericanos, denuncian los autores Mendoza, Montaner y Vargas Llosa. Disfrazando su viejo discurso, los caudillos globalifóbicos arrastran al continente de habla hispana hacia el fracaso. Este libro es más que una advertencia: desmenuza los regímenes de Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez, Evo Morales, Néstor Kirchner y Rafael Correa; denuncia los peligros que representan Andrés Manuel López Obrador y Ollanta Humala; analiza la izquierda "vegetariana" del Brasil, Uruguay y Perú, y polemiza con los soportes intelectuales de la izquierda "carnívora" de España "encarnada por el 'talante' de Zapatero y esa política denominada 'el buenismo'", Francia y Estados Unidos. En contrapunto, los autores exponen las experiencias de países en desarrollo que han optado por estrategias liberales con éxito: Chile, Estonia, China, India e Irlanda.--Desde la descripción de la editorial

David Benda, quien realizaría el último retrato de Sigmund Freud, es el nombre tras el que se esconde un joven y extraordinario pintor. David es judío y vive una intensa pasión con una bella joven vienesa aria, en un momento histórico terrible en que esas relaciones son un delito. Los nazis están a punto de entrar en Austria, y esa invasión será el preludio de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y de una fascinante historia de amor, violencia y resistencia a la tiranía. David huye a La Habana a bordo del Saint Louis, el barco de los condenados, ciudad donde vuelve a enamorarse y donde desea ardientemente echar raíces y olvidarse para siempre de Europa y sus crueldades. Lo atormentan el recuerdo de una muerte trágica y la necesidad de vengarse de un asesino al que una vez consideró su amigo. Lamentablemente, tampoco consigue arraigar en Cuba. Otra vez tiene que huir a un nuevo país y, sin proponérselo, a otros brazos. En Nueva York se reencuentra con un viejo amor de juventud y se aproxima de nuevo a la felicidad. La historia de David Benda, llena de aventuras y desventuras, de amores y desencuentros, es la del siglo que terminó hace pocos años. De alguna manera, es la historia de todos
