After Fidel: The Inside Story of Castro's Regime and Cuba's Next Leader

Overview

In this compelling, behind-the-scenes account, former top CIA officer and Cuba expert Brian Latell examines the extraordinary Castro brothers and the impending dynastic succession of Fidel's younger brother, Raul. Exploring the brothers' remarkable relationship, he reveals how Fidel and Raul have collaborated, divided responsibilities, and resolved disagreements for more than forty-six years--a challenge to the notion that the little-known Raul has been an insignificant player. The result is an intimate portrait of two enigmatic men and a new understanding of the psychology and motivation behind their actions. Based on his insider knowledge of Raul, Latell projects what kind of leader he will be and how the shift in power might influence US-Cuban relations.

Reviews

Latell dispels many of the fallacies, myths, and legends about Fidel...[A] readable narrative and an excellent addition to the growing literature on Cuba. Highly recommended. -- Library Journal Stefan Rudnicki's deep, articulate voice carries the listener through the detailed commentary. -- AudioFile Those hungry for a greater understanding of Fidel's character and the complicated relationship between the Castro brothers will find priceless nuggets here. -- Publishers Weekly Few Americans understand Cuba-past, present, and future-better than Brian Latell. He has combined an old CIA hand's knowledge and insights with a clear, readable writer's touch to bring both Castros-Fidel and his enigmatic brother Raul-to life. -- Newsweek
