With the disintegration of the Soviet Union and international socialism, Cuba now finds itself isolated as the United States continues to press for its economic and political collapse. How Fidel Castro sees Cuba's plight and what he hopes to do about it emerge from this account of a unique conference held in Havana in 1992, which brought together the Soviet, Cuban, and American participants in the Cuban missile crisis to discuss its causes and course.
