Guerrilla Prince: The Untold Story of Fidel Castro

Front Cover
Andrews McMeel Publishing, Feb 7, 2002 - Biography & Autobiography - 496 pages
3 Reviews
Syndicated journalist Georgie Anne Geyer calls on her nearly 40 years of experience covering Latin America to create an extraordinary biography that reveals the untold story of Fidel Castro, revolutionary and demagogue. Based on hundreds of interviews and unique sources -- including four extensive personal interviews with Castro -- Guerrilla Prince is an intimate and revealing portrait, charged with all the electricity of the charismatic leader.

In this updated edition, Ms. Geyer presents new insights and addresses the changes since the 1991 release of Guerrilla Prince in hardcover -- the collapse of the Soviet Union, the internal unrest, and the growing anticipation of a post-Castro Cuba.
