Sad and Luminous Days: Cuba's Struggle with the Superpowers after the Missile Crisis

by James G. Blight (Author), Philip Brenner (Author)

In tracing the developments of the Cuban Missile Crisis and beyond, this book presents and interprets a heretofore unavailable (and largely unknown) secret speech that Castro delivered to the Cuban leadership in 1968. Blight and Brenner shed new light on Cuban-Soviet relations making Sad and Luminous Days essential not only for Cold-War scholars and historians, but also for anyone intrigued by the drama of the thirteen momentous days in October 1962.
