    This is a series of Castro's speeches to different assemblies and organizations. He is pretty articulate in his critique of capitalism and its effects on the third world, but a lot weak on offering alternatives as he is totally unable to admit to the shortcomings of his own country or regime. So every attempt to understand the system he defends reads like, "If not for capitalism and first world domination these problems would not exist." Which is such a bummer because this is a guy who is pretty This is a series of Castro's speeches to different assemblies and organizations.

So every attempt to understand the system he defends reads like, "If not for capitalism and first world domination these problems would not exist." Which is such a bummer because this is a guy who is pretty damned smart and if he could take an honest or non-political look at his country we might come down to some real insights about alternatives, instead of the obvious problems with the status quo that the kind of people who pick up these book (and commission these speeches) are all too aware and willing to cop to. Now that he's retired, perhaps we might get an actual dialogue, although he's been doing this stuff for so long I wonder if he can even see through it all anymore.

    An interesting series of speeches and interviews with Fidel Castro from June 2000 to November 2001. Many of the projections Castro made about the dangers of an economy based on speculation - currency speculation, stock market futures, etc - came to the forefront seven years after these speeches were made when the global economy bubble burst. The world instability he predicted due to the American's unilateral decision to attack Afghanistan after 9/11 - not waiting for the UN to decide what action An interesting series of speeches and interviews with Fidel Castro from June 2000 to November 2001. Many of the projections Castro made about the dangers of an economy based on speculation - currency speculation, stock market futures, etc - came to the forefront seven years after these speeches were made when the global economy bubble burst. The world instability he predicted due to the American's unilateral decision to attack Afghanistan after 9/11 - not waiting for the UN to decide what action to take- has also come to pass in Libya, Syria, and Iraq. Due to the short time frame involved, some parts are repeated in multiple speeches. What is most notably lacking in this compilation is the fiery rhetoric usually associated with Marxist speeches, though it does come through in a few places.

    War, terrorism and economic crisis are all born of an unsuccessful and unsustainable political and economic order. Fidel deplores the fact that the US government holds the sole veto power in the IMF and the World Bank, which prevents these bodies from being changed from tools of destruction. Fidel asserts that theft of resources and of capital from Third World countries equals genocide, and looking at the huge numbers of unnecessary child deaths in those countries, one can only agree.

    Hard to read but was interesting to read about these topics from a third work perspective.
