Island in the storm : the Cuban Communist Party's Fourth Congress by Partido Comunista de Cuba( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 138 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

De cierta manera = Sort of by Sara Gómez Yera( Visual )

This revolutionary love story is an intimate and complex portrayal of social, racial and sexual relations as they are played out in the lives of Mario, a factory worker, and Yolanda, a primary school teacher. De cierta manera, the title is symbolic, expressing the hope and the belief that the one way or another, the Revolution will resolve the unresolved social and class struggles which were the legacies of pre-revolutionary society. Director Sara Gómez use of fiction sequences interspersed with documentary footage is both startling and purposeful
