The Taming of Fidel Castro

By Maurice Halperin
University of California Press, 1981
336 pp. $18.95

In a sequel to The Rise and Decline of Fidel Castro (1972), the author covers the years from 1964 to 1968, a period that he believes brought the transition from revolutionary process to a mature, structured bureaucracy in the Russian style. The promise of civil liberties, of more abundant material goods and of intellectual creativity had been irretrievably negated.
