Sympathetic to the Cuban and related revolutionary movements, the author seeks the source of the Cuban phenomenon in myths bequeathed by earlier Cuban history. Building upon those, the guerrilla struggles of the 1950s and early 1960s, which are described in detail, in turn provided a further mythology whose function was to sustain morale and consciousness.
