Fidel Castro : my life : a spoken autobiography by Ignacio Ramonet( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fidel Castro is perhaps the most charismatic and controversial head of state in modern times. A dictatorial pariah to some, he has become a hero and inspiration for many of the world's poor, defiantly charting an independent and revolutionary path for Cuba over nearly half a century. Numerous attempts have been made to get Castro to tell his own story, but only now, in the twilight of his years, has he been prepared to set out the details for the world to read. Drawing on more than one hundred hours of interviews with journalist Ignacio Ramonet, a knowledgeable and trusted interlocutor, this spoken autobiography will stand as the definitive record of an extraordinary life lived in turbulent times.--From publisher description
Fidel Castro, biografía a dos voces by Ignacio Ramonet( Book )

94 editions published between 2006 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fidel Castro is perhaps the most charismatic and controversial head of state in modern times. A dictatorial pariah to some, he has become a hero and inspiration for many of the world's poor, defiantly charting an independent and revolutionary path for Cuba over nearly half a century. Numerous attempts have been made to get Castro to tell his own story. But only now, in the twilight of his years, has he been prepared to set out the details of his remarkable biography for the world to read. This book is nothing less than his living testament. As he told reporters, his desire to finish checking its text was the one thing that kept him going through his recent illness. He presented a copy of the book in its Spanish edition to his compadre President Hugo ChAvez of Venezuela. In these pages, Castro narrates a compelling chronicle that spans the harshness of his elementary school teachers; the early failures of the revolution; his intense comradeship with Che Guevara and their astonishing, against-all-odds victory over the dictator Batista; the Cuban perspective on the Bay of Pigs and the ensuing missile crisis; the active role of Cuba in African independence movements (especially its large military involvement in fighting apartheid South Africa in Angola); his relations with prominent public figures such as Boris Yeltsin, Pope John Paul II, and Saddam Hussein; and his dealings with no less than ten successive American presidents, from Eisenhower to George W. Bush. Castro talks proudly of increasing life expectancy in Cuba (now longer than in the United States); of the half million students in Cuban universities; and of the training of seventy thousand Cuban doctors nearly half of whom work abroad, assisting the poor in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. He is confronted with a number of thorny issues, including democracy and human rights, discrimination toward homosexuals, and the continuing presence of the death penalty on Cuban statute books. Along the way he shares intimacies about more personal matters: the benevolent strictness of his father, his successful attempt to give up cigars, his love of Ernest Hemingway's novels, and his calculation that by not shaving he saves up to ten working days each year. Drawing on more than one hundred hours of interviews with Ignacio Ramonet, a knowledgeable and trusted interlocutor, this spoken autobiography will stand as the definitive record of an extraordinary life lived in turbulent times

My first life : conversations with Ignacio Ramonet by Hugo Chávez Frías( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most important Latin American leaders of the twenty-first century, Hugo Chávez was a military officer who became a left-wing revolutionary. This book tells the story of his life until the moment he was elected President in 1998. His energy and charisma shine throughout the riveting and historically important story of his early years, describing how he slowly uncovered the reality of his country--hugely unequal, with the majority of its citizens living in indescribably impoverished conditions--and decided that he had to do something about it. Among other things, it is a fascinating account of his long-planned military conspiracy--the most significant in the history of Venezuela and perhaps of Latin America--that led up to his unsuccessful coup of 1992, and eventually to his popular electoral victory in 1998"--Provided by publisher

L'explosion du journalisme : des médias de masse à la masse de médias by Ignacio Ramonet( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in French and Italian and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quel avenir pour la presse écrite à l'heure où l'écosystème médiatique est dynamité par la révolution numérique et le développement des réseaux sociaux ? Chaque citoyen, dans la nouvelle société-réseau, a vocation à devenir «journaliste» en s'appropriant des dispositifs légers comme les blogs, Twitter ou Facebook ; certains envisagent même un «journalisme sans journalistes», pour garantir l'existence d'une information libre et indépendante. Sous les diktats de l'urgence et du marché, les lois de l'information changent très vite, tandis que se multiplient les risques de manipulation. Certains genres plébiscités par l'opinion publique, comme le journalisme de reportage ou d'investigation, sont déjà en voie de disparition, jugés trop coûteux. Cependant, ce nouveau système n'a pas encore réussi à trouver de modèle économique viable, alors que des sites Web novateurs et mieux adaptés à leur environnement viennent concurrencer les grands médias traditionnels. Le journalisme y survivra-t-il ? Sans doute, car il en a vu d'autres et n'a jamais connu d'«âge d'or». Mais, aujourd'hui, il est en quelque sorte dans la situation de Gulliver à son arrivée dans l'île des Lilliputiens, ligoté par des milliers de liens minuscules

L'empire de la surveillance ; suivi de deux entretiens avec Julian Assange Noam Chomsky by Ignacio Ramonet( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les spectaculaires révélations du lanceur d'alerte Edward Snowden ont permis au plus grand nombre de découvrir que la protection de notre vie privée est désormais menacée par la surveillance de masse à laquelle nous soumettent les merveilleux outils (smartphones, tablettes, ordinateurs) qui devaient élargir notre espace de liberté ... Pourtant, on mesure encore mal à quel point, et de quelle façon, nous sommes espionnés. Et donc contrôlés. L'inimaginable révolution numérique dans laquelle Internet nous a fait entrer a totalement bouleversé le champ du renseignement et de la surveillance, devenue omniprésente et parfaitement immatérielle. Elle profite en premier lieux aux cinq entreprises privées qui dominent la Toile -- Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon et Microsoft -- et qui s'enrichissent de l'exploitation de nos données personnelles, qu'elles transfèrent par ailleurs en continu à la NSA, la plus secrète et la plus puissante des agences américaines de renseignement. Mais d'autre part et simultanément, au prétexte de lutter notamment contre le terrorisme, des gouvernements -- y compris parmi les plus démocratiques --, s'érigent en Big Brother, n'hésitant plus à enfreindre leurs propres lois pour mieux espionner leurs citoyens. Dans un texte fort documenté et nourri d'exemples, Ignacio Ramonez décrit l'alliance sans précédent -- Etat, appareil militaire de sécurité, industries géantes du Web -- qui a produit cet Empire de la surveillance qui défie les citoyens, restreint leurs droits civiques et met en péril une certaine conception de la démocratie. A l'appui de ces thèses, l'auteur convoque deux grands témoins avec lesquels il s'entretient : Julian Assange, le fondateur de WikiLeaks, et Noam Chomsky, l'un des plus grands intellectuels de notre temps
