Fidel Castro, tireless advocate for a more just world, speaks to the hearts of people every-where who are demanding a change in the world economic order. He comments, "People used to talk about apartheid in South Africa. Today we could talk about apartheid throughout the world, where over four billion people are deprived of the most basic rights of all human beings." This sharp, brief collection analyzes the crisis of the Third World, possibilities for sustainable development and the future of socialism in the new millennium. "We are fighting for the most sacred rights of the poor countries; but we are also fighting for the salvation of a First World incapable of preserving the existence of the human species." On a more optimistic note, Castro concludes: "The end of history, predicted by a few euphoric dreamers, is not here, yet. Perhaps history is just beginning..." "It is the heart of he or she that I seek, who looks at a life of vapid materialism, of capitalist excess, and finds it simply intolerable." Mumia Abu-Jamal"
