Descripción

"I tell this story from the very personal perspective of someone who lived in Cuba. This book doesn't pretend to be a scholarly analysis of Cuban politics or economics. Rather, it is my story of eleven years on the island, working, writing, raising four children, and participating in the revolutions dramatic process of social change. I neither exaggerate the positive nor gloss over the negative. i do extrapolate from experience and venture opinions, but they are the opinions of a women, a mother, a feminist, a poet-rather than those of an economist or social scientist. I hope what emerges is a picture of how it felt to live in Cuba from 1969 to 1980: the energy, hope, pride, generosity of spirit, difficulty, and sometimes distress. We believed we were changing the world." This book has 273 pages and is illustrated throughout. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Margaret Randall. N° de ref. de la librería 062216

Sinopsis:

In To Change the World, the legendary writer and poet Margaret Randall chronicles her decade in Cuba from 1969 to 1980. Both a highly personal memoir and an examination of the revolution's great achievements and painful mistakes, the book paints a portrait of the island during a difficult, dramatic, and exciting time.

Randall gives readers an inside look at her children's education, the process through which new law was enacted, the ins and outs of healthcare, employment, internationalism, culture, and ordinary people's lives. She explores issues of censorship and repression, describing how Cuban writers and artists faced them. She recounts one of the country's last beauty pageants, shows us a night of People's Court, and takes us with her when she shops for her family's food rations. Key figures of the revolution appear throughout, and Randall reveals aspects of their lives never before seen.

More than fifty black and white photographs, most by the author, add depth and richness to this astute and illuminating memoir. Written with a poet's ear, depicted with a photographer's eye, and filled with a feminist vision, To Change the Worldùneither an apology nor gratuitous attackùadds immensely to the existing literature on revolutionary Cuba.
