He is a well known and prestigious professional and businessman who, after dealing directly with the harsh cruelty, the ignorance and corruption that were actually going on in Cuba, tried to create a new political party in the island, inspired in the ideals of Jose Marti, Cuba's National Hero, to oppose Castro's communist rule. He was imprisoned for this. He was convinced then, like he is today, that something had to be done for his country to bring it to a new democratic path. Author Andres J. Solares grippingly shares his views on the current situation of Cuba under Castro and what the future of the island may be in his newly released eye-opening book, CUBA: The Disaster of Castro’s Revolution.
The facts and events described in this book show how many essential aspects of the Cuban revolution have been manipulated. There are many books written on Castro and his so-called revolution but author Solares’s main objective in writing and releasing this book is to give an account of the main aspects of the disaster Castro has created in Cuba. Thus, this mentioned disaster becomes the main character of the book, and going through it, Solares has tried to explain the situation in which Cuba is at the present and the alternatives for its future. This is a book on ideas, which argues Castro’s concepts from a different perspective than the one presented by the official propaganda and many other books that defend or justify in one way or another his regime. This book shows that, instead of bringing improvements to Cuba, Castro has brought the worst disaster the country has experienced. It is not only a material disaster, but a moral, cultural, and economic catastrophe. It also describes how Castro’s system has entered a final stage of decomposition, which hopefully will finally leave way for the Cuban people to start rebuilding the country.
“I hope that our arguments on Castro’s ideas and concepts can make people reflect on these matters and allow them to find the truth by themselves. I sincerely hope that those who honor me with its reading find this book interesting,” says the author.
