Six essays explore the curiosities of media fascination with Fidel Castro, a phenomenon the authors believe is accounted for in part by the fact that Castro has an instinctive talent for personal and media manipulation. A useful preface forms a backdrop, putting Cuban realities into accurate perspective, so that they contrast all the more strangely with the sometimes mythic media treatment.
