Abstract

While many histories of the Cuban Revolution focus on Che Guevara, Fidel Castro and Celia Sánchez, in her new book Margaret Randall turns her attention to a central, yet lesser-known, figure. Haydée Santamaría, Cuban Revolutionary: She Led By Transgression examines the life of this former revolutionary, weaving together the author’s experiences and memories as well as biographical details and interviews. Katherine Bailey praises this work for its beauty and clarity, offering a deeply personal portrait that will also be of interest to those studying Cuba pre- and post-Revolution.
