Island in the storm : the Cuban Communist Party's Fourth Congress by Partido Comunista de Cuba ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A self-indulgent and uninformed account of the Communist Party's Fourth Congress in 1991, riddled with triumphalism and superficiality. Author claims that 'social justice remains the centerpiece of Cuban socialism' (p. 22) and that the party 'will stay at the helm all the way' (p. 23) despite multiplying difficulties on all fronts. Disregard the author's opinions and judgements and use this book for the bibliographical information provided on leading cadres"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57
