From the man called "one of America's foremost Cuba analysts" by former CIA director George J. Tenet comes this original view of Fidel Castro in his role as Cuba's supreme spymaster. Brian Latell’s, Castro's Secrets: The CIA and Cuba's Intelligence Machine (Palgrave Macmillan, $27.00) exposes long-buried secrets of Castro's nearly 50-year reign for the first time. They include numerous successful and attempted assassinations carried out on Castro's orders, some against foreign leaders. Most notable is the assertion that the Castro administration was aware of Lee Harvey Oswald’s intention to kill the Kennedy. Latell began tracking the Castro brothers for the CIA in the 1960s. His articles have appeared in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Time, The Miami Herald, the Washington Quarterly, among others.
