Guerrilla Prince: The Untold Story Of Fidel Castro

By Georgie Anne Geyer

Little, Brown, 1991, 445 pp.

One of this country's most experienced foreign correspondents has produced an important book on Fidel Castro, surely one of the century's most noteworthy and intriguing political leaders. Drawing on persistent investigative reporting, extensive research, pop psychology, gossip and intuition, Geyer weaves a fascinating if not quite definitive portrait of Castro's rise and appeal, his skills and flaws, and his increasing isolation.
