Description

Bibliographic information. The brink: Cuban missile crisis, 1962.

Bibliographic information. Thomas Y. Crowell Company, 1979. the University of Michigan.

Detzer describes the background and circumstances that led to the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. Special focus is given to its central characters- the freedom loving JFK, the shrewd Khrushchev and the controversial Cuban dictator of Fidel Castro. Although the book is largely truthful, there are some tidbits of misinformation (or lack of it). On one hand, the first chapter contains a good synopsis on Castro and Batista's early lives, and a description of the Revolution as a largely bourgeois phenomenon

The Russians backed-off, the missiles were removed, and a confrontation that was in large measure 's tough stance, Detzer makes clear, was dictated by domestic party politics-subsided. By general consensus, the confrontation with the Soviet Union over offensive missiles in Cuba-set against the background of the Berlin crisis-moved the superpowers as close to war as they have ever gotten. This agreement is based on a fairly thorough knowledge of what transpired at the ""highest levels"" of government.
