About The Author

Fidel Castro led a guerrilla movement in Cuba that overthrew the Batista dictatorship in 1959. Since then, the Cuban president has been the nemesis of ten U.S. administrations. He stepped down in 2007 but has regularly expressed his views on world events and political personalities in his famous "reflections." Frei Betto is a Brazilian priest, who worked with the internationally renowned Brazilian educator, Paolo Freire, and later organized Christian base communities. Recently he has been a adviser to the Lula government in Brazil on social policy. He is a widely acclaimed liberation theologist and a prominent spokesperson at the World Social Forum on globalization issues. Armando Hart was an underground activist in the struggle against the Batista dictatorship in Cuba. He was named as minister of education in the revolutionary government and led the nationwide literacy campaign. Later (1976-97) he became minister of culture. He is the author of numerous essays, articles and books on culture and cultural policy, history and social development
