This is an excellent biography by journalist Tad Szulc that portrays the life of Fidel Castro from his childhood, his Havana University days, and as leader of the Cuban Revolution. The first two thirds of this 650+ page book covers Castro's activities before the triumph of the Revolution. The author makes the observation that Castro grew up in an area economically dominated by American businesses, a fact that may have planted a seed of resentment in the young impressionable Fidel.
The book doesn't analyse Fidel's policy decisions in any great detail but rather leaves the reader understanding why such decisions were made by Fidel.

I read Tad Szulc's book "FIDEL: A Critical Portrait" during the late 1980s. It's one of the best biographies of Fidel Castro that I've had the pleasure of reading. The book also contains a first-rate map of Cuba. Mar 24, 2017 Julio César rated it really liked it. This was a long read, indeed. Szulc begins with a section seemingly intended to psychoanalyze Castro to some extent, and I had a hard time finding a rhythm through these initial 50 or 60 pages.
Fidel: a critical portrait.
The outcome of a long, direct relationship, this riveting portrait reveals astonishing and exclusive information about Cuba, the revolution, and the notorious, larger-than-life leader who has ruled his country with an iron fist for more than forty years.
