23 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thirty-six years after the Cuban Missile Crisis, these declassified documents stand as testament to just how dangerously close the world came to nuclear destruction in 1962, and challenge the official history of the event as a model of crisis management." "This collection of formerly secret records - including correspondence between John F. Kennedy, Nikita Krushchev, and Fidel Castro, as well as intelligence reports, minutes, and cables - provides a unique fly-on-the-wall view of the policy decisions and operations that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war. The editors have provided a document-by-document account of the most important superpower confrontation of the twentieth century."--Jacket

Back channel to Cuba : the hidden history of negotiations between Washington and Havana by William M LeoGrande( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Challenging the conventional wisdom of perpetual hostility between the United States and Cuba--beyond invasions, covert operations, assassination plots using poison pens and exploding seashells, and a grinding economic embargo--this fascinating book chronicles a surprising, untold history of bilateral efforts toward rapprochement and reconciliation. Since 1959, conflict and aggression have dominated the story of U.S.-Cuban relations. Now, LeoGrande and Kornbluh present a new and increasingly more relevant account. From Kennedy's offering of an olive branch to Castro after the missile crisis, to Kissinger's top secret quest for normalization, to Obama's promise of a 'new approach, ' LeoGrande and Kornbluh reveal a fifty-year record of dialogue and negotiations, both open and furtive, indicating a path toward better relations in the future"--Provided by publisher
Politics of illusion : the Bay of Pigs invasion reexamined by James G Blight( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on an innovative series of meetings that brought together former CIA officials, former anti-Castro Cuban operatives, a former high-ranking Soviet official, and others who were directly involved in the events - nearly all speaking on the record for the first time - this critical oral history demonstrates that all of the anti-Castro parties were guilty of illusions, to one degree or another. Blight and Kornbluh provide a thorough and perceptive context for the discussions held at the meetings, transcripts of the actual sessions, a selection of the main documents discussed by the participants, and a discussion of the implications of the participants' conclusions for current U.S.-Cuban relations

Missing by Costa-Gavras( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the title screens proclaim, "This film is based on a true story. The incidents and facts are documented. Some of the names have been changed to protect the innocent and also to protect the film." In a Latin American country in the throes of a military coup, Charles Horman, an American journalist and filmmaker living there with his wife Joyce, disappears--never to be seen again. His father Ed always found his son flaky and naïve, and didn't approve of his lifestyle, but he joins Joyce in a wild-goose chase through bureaucratic dead ends. They eventually come to suspect that the American consulate is lying to them about Charles' disappearance and about their country's investment in the coup's success. Ed makes the transition from unquestioning patriot to newly awakened skeptic of U.S. covert activities, a decent citizen who embodies the conscience of a nation

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cuba in revolution by Richard Gott( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exceptional photographs in this publication capture the complexity of the Cuban Revolution in all its contradictory beauty. From Constantino Arias's portraits of poverty and wealth in pre-Revolutionary Havana to the photographs of the dead Che Guevara in Bolivia, the Cuban story was told in silver gelatin as much as it was in words. Snapshots of Fidel Castro playing golf or hunting in the Soviet Union complement iconic pictures of Che Guevara by Alberto Korda and Rene Burri, and yet revolutionary Cuba was taking its first steps during one of the hottest periods of the Cold War. The political and the personal merge in this collection to reveal startlingly intimate portraits of Che Guevara by Andrew Saint-George and photographs of the local, forbidden pop culture in the mid-sixties by Jose Figueroa. Throughout the publication there is an exhilarating tension between heroic portraiture of the leaders-Castro, Guevara, and Cienfuegos-and the dramatic "staging" of a people in the throes of revolutionary transformation

In addition to revealing the events surrounding the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, this is the first book to document a Cold War crisis from both sides of the Iron Curtain. It is based on unprecedented access to the previously closed archives of each member of the Warsaw Pact, as well as once highly classified American documents from the National Security Council, CIA, and other intelligence agencies. Presented in a highly readable volume, the book offers top-level documents from Kremlin Politburo meetings, multilateral sessions of the Warsaw Pact leading up to the decision to invade, transcripts of KGB-recorded telephone conversations between Leonid Brezhnev and Alexander Dubcek. To provide a historical and political context, the editors have prepared essays to introduce each section of the volume. A chronology, glossary and bibliography offer further background information for the reader. The editors have a unique perspective to offer to foreign audiences since they are members of the commission appointed by Vaclav Havel to investigate the events of 1967-1970
