Description

The Secret Fidel Castro: Deconstructing the Symbol is neither a history of the Cuban revolution nor a biography of Fidel Castro. The book follows what intelligence services call a CPP (short for Comprehensive Personality Profile), similar to the ones intelligence services keep on foreign leaders. It focuses on different aspects of Castro?s actions and personality which, for some reasons, have been either ignored, misunderstood, or misrepresented. The main thesis of this book is that there are many different Castros. The most widely known is the symbolic, public one, as it has been portrayed in official Cuban propaganda, Castro-friendly biographies, and mainstream American media. But there are also many secret Castros, highly different from the public one. By ?deconstructing? different aspects of the life of the symbolic Fidel Castro the author tries to prove that all of them, the symbolic and the secret ones, are suspect and, therefore, all answers are partial. The Secret Fidel Castro, focuses on little known aspects of Castro?s personality, important in the better understanding of the man and his actions?what really makes him tick.
