Revolution and Reaction in Cuba 1933-1960
Revolution and Reaction in Cuba 1933-1960
By Samuel Farber
Wesleyan University Press, 1976, 283 pp.

Analyzing the Cuban revolution and its structural background from a revolutionary democratic-socialist perspective, the author defines the Castro regime, disapprovingly, as Bonapartist. Cuba is "a new totalitarian and bureaucratic state in which one man, with the aid of a small group of associates, controls the economic, social and political life in the country."
