'All Past Times Were Worse': Remembering Fidel Castro

Description
Fidel Castro (1926–2016), was without doubt, one of the most forceful protagonists to erupt onto the global stage in the 20th century. Drama, charisma, audacity and defiant dynamism marked his emergence as a young leader, following his successful overthrow of the US-backed dictator Fulgencio Batista in 1959, and his defence of the Revolution against its principal detractors for almost 60 years. The Cuban Revolution radically reshaped Cuban society, transforming the nation's geopolitical significance, and making it a vital broker in major global negotiations at key stages in the cold war and beyond.
