Uncritically lauded by the left and impulsively denounced by the right, the Cuban Revolution is almost universally viewed one dimensionally. Samuel Farber, one of its most informed left-wing critics, provides a much needed critical assessment of the Revolution's impact and legacy.

I really enjoyed reading Farber's book. One of the most well-informed and astute analysts of Castro's Cuba, Farber writes from what he describes as "the classical Marxist tradition that preceded Stalinism in the USSR." In the intro, Faber says he will concentrate on "those questions that I believe have been subject to a great deal of mythmaking, fallacies, and misunderstandings..." So there is a polemical quality to this books which makes it delightful reading.

A very enlightening read; usually we are told that Cuba is either awesome or horrible, but this is a more nuanced look into the politics of that country since 1959.
