About the Book

“You may paint me as the devil as long as you remain objective,” said Fidel Castro to his biographer, Tad Szulc. The result is a riveting portrait of one of the world’s most controversial leaders — the man who ruled Cuba with an iron fist for more than forty years, and who brought the world to the brink of nuclear disaster during the Bay of Pigs crisis. Szulc had unprecedented access to Castro and his inner circle, resulting in a volume full of astonishing new details about Cuba, the revolution, and its notorious, larger-than-life leader.

Tad Szulc is a veteran New York Times correspondent.

“Deserves to become the basic text on its subject.” — The Economist
