Description

Este libro nos transporta al fin de una revoluci�n a trav�s de un relato extraordinariamente v�vido de la Cuba post-Fidel.

�C�mo narrar el final de uno de los procesos pol�ticos m�s relevantes ocurridos en Latinoam�rica? �Qu� registrar cuando se visita una isla donde se cede lentamente el paso a la modernizaci�n? Ambas preguntas remiten a una cuesti�n innegable: un cap�tulo en la historia contempor�nea est� terminando. Por esta raz�n, durante los �ltimos a�os, Patricio Fern�ndez ha viajado a Cuba para relatar los hechos que han acontecido en la isla antes y despu�s de que Fidel Castro dejara el poder en manos de su hermano Ra�l.

Tomando el pulso de la vida cotidiana y describiendo sus pormenores, a la vez que recogiendo testimonios de personajes centrales y de cubanos tan an�nimos como singulares, Cuba. Viaje al fin de la Revoluci�n relata el hist�rico restablecimiento de las relaciones con Estados Unidos, las visitas del papa Francisco y de los Rolling Stones, la muerte de Fidel y el proceso de paz entre Colombia y las FARC mediado por la isla, entre otros hitos.

Este libro es, en suma, el retrato de una sociedad o, como se�ala su autor, "lo que ha quedado de ella: lo bueno, lo malo y lo inclasificable de uno de los proyectos sociales m�s ambiciosos de la historia humana, llevado a cabo en esta peque�a isla que hoy habita en comp�s de espera, aunque sin esperanza".

"Este libro es una cr�tica de la �poca, de la esperanza tramposa de la revoluci�n cubana. Admiro much�simo la sutilidad y la comprensi�n de distintas perspectivas que no he visto en otros libros sobre el tema.".-David Rieff

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Cuba. Journey to the End of the Revolution
Fernandez's account takes us to the end of the revolution through an amazingly brilliant look at a post-Fidel Cuba.

How to narrate the end of one of the most relevant political processes in Latin America? What to document and record when visiting an island where the pace of modernization is slowly giving way? Both questions refer to an undeniable fact: a chapter in contemporary history is ending. For this reason, the last few years Patricio Fernandez has traveled to Cuba to document and witness events that have taken place on the island before and after Fidel Castro left power to his brother Ra�l.

By witnessing the heartbeat of everyday life and describing its details, collecting testimonies from key people and from regular Cuban citizens, Cuba. Journey to the End of the Revolution relates many accounts such as the historic reinstatement of US relations, Pope Francis' and the Rolling Stones' visits, Fidel's death, and the peace process that Cuba mediated between Colombia and the FARC, among other milestones.

In short, this book is the portrait of a society or, as the author points out, "what was left of it: the good, the bad, and the unclassifiable."
