Publisher's Summary

In this compelling, behind-the-scenes account, former top CIA officer and Cuba expert Brian Latell examines the extraordinary Castro brothers and the impending dynastic succession of Fidel's younger brother, Raul. Exploring the brothers' remarkable relationship, he reveals how Fidel and Raul have collaborated, divided responsibilities, and resolved disagreements for more than 46 years, a challenge to the notion that the little-known Raul has been an insignificant player. The result is an intimate portrait of two enigmatic men and a new understanding of the psychology and motivation behind their actions. Based on his insider knowledge of Raul, Latell projects what kind of leader he will be and how the shift in power might influence U.S.-Cuban relations.

What the Critics Say

"[T]hose hungry for a greater understanding of Fidel's character and the complicated relationship between the Castro brothers will find priceless nuggets here." (Publishers Weekly)
"Few Americans understand Cuba, past, present, and future, better than Brian Latell. He has combined an old CIA hand's knowledge and insights with a clear, readable writer's touch to bring both Castros, Fidel and his enigmatic brother Raul, to life." (Newsweek) "Latell dispels many of the fallacies, myths, and legends about Fidel....Since existing biographical information on Raul Castro is sparse and scattered, the book takes on added value in bringing such material together....[A] readable narrative and an excellent addition to the growing literature on Cuba. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

Cuba's Going To Be Changin'

I really enjoyed this book and found it gave a lot of historical overview as well as a good peek at what's to come. I feel for the Cuban people in that there will be so much catching up for them to do in order to come into the modern world of things.
