Tras la larga convalecencia sufrida en 2006, Fidel Castro revisó y amplió el exhaustivo trabajo de investigación y entrevistas que Ignacio Ramonet había publicado ese mismo año. Sin duda, el presente libro responde a preguntas imprescindibles para entender la historia reciente de Cuba y completa de forma definitiva aquella obra.

¿Cómo eran los padres de Castro?¿Dónde y cuándo se forjó el rebelde?¿Cómo fue su relación con el Che?¿Estuvo el mundo al borde de una guerra nuclear durante la llamada "Crisis de los misiles"?¿Qué impresión le causó el papa Juan Pablo II cuando visitó la isla en 1998?¿Qué piensa de la globalización neoliberal y de George W. Bush?¿Del rey Juan Carlos y los presidentes españoles?¿De Hugo Chávez y Evo Morales?¿Existe corrupción en el régimen?¿Qué ocurrirá con Cuba en el futuro próximo?

Fidel Castro. Biografía a dos voces traza un recorrido por la controvertida figura del líder cubano, proporcionando un relato apasionante sobre el pasado, el presente y el porvenir de la Revolución, y se constituye como la memoria oral de uno de los hombres que definieron el siglo XX.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Now in paperback, the intimate and highly revealing life story of the world''s longest-serving, most charismatic, and contro- versial head of state in modern times.

Numerous attempts have been made to get Fidel Castro to tell his own story. But it was only as he stepped down after five decades in power, that the Cuban leader finally decided to set out the detail of his life for the world to read. In these pages, he presents a compelling chronicle that spans the harshness of his school teachers; the early failures of the revolution; his comradeship with Che Guevara and their astonishing, against-all-odds victory over the dictator Batista; the Cuban perspective on the Bay of Pigs and the ensuing missile crisis; the active role of Cuba in African independence movements; his dealings with no fewer than ten successive American presidents, from Eisenhower to George W. Bush; and a number of thorny issues, including human rights, the treatment of homosexuals, and the use of the death penalty in Cuba. Along the way he shares intimacies about more personal matters: the benevolent strict- ness of his father, his success- ful attempt to give up cigars, his love of Ernest Hemingway''s novels, and his calculation that by not shaving he saves up to ten working days each year.

Drawing on more than one hundred hours of interviews, this spoken autobiography will stand as the definitive record of an extraordinary life lived in turbulent times.
