A brief history of Cuba and the 1958 Revolution which examines the alleged "socialist" nature of the governing regime.
"..the major event of the twentieth century has been the abandonment of the values of liberty on the part of the revolutionary movement, the weakening of Libertarian Socialism, vis-a-vis Caesarist and militaristic Socialism. Since then, a great hope has disappeared from the world to be replaced by a deep sense of emptiness in the hearts of all who yearn for Freedom...."
A pamphlet written in 1987 by Frank Fernandez, with introduction by Sam Dolgoff, about the Cuban anarchist and workers' movements from the mid 1800s up until the mid 1970s.
It was a precursor to his more detailed 2001 book, Cuban Anarchism: The history of a movement
Frank Fernandez's 2001 book Cuban Anarchism: The history of a movement, which gives a historical account of the rise and fall of Cuba's inspiring anarchist movement.
It is now mostly out of print. However, he writes extensively on many trends and schools of thought related to Cuba and its history.
