Havana.- On May 25, Cuban publisher Ciencias Sociales launched the book Yo soy Fidel: Pensamiento económico y político (I am Fidel: Political and Economic Thought), which explores the continued relevance of the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution’s thought.
The 240-page work features various texts complied by Hero of the Republic of Cuba Ramón Labañino, and Deputy Rector of La Sapienza University in Italy, Luciano Vasapollo, and was launched in honor of the editorial’s 50th anniversary.
The new book includes articles by Cuban economists, accountants, and journalists on Fidel Castro’s ideas regarding various contemporary issues.
According to Labañino, also vice president of the National Association of Economists and Accountants of Cuba, the idea for the book emerged following the Comandante en Jefe’s death last November 25, and the importance of preserving and disseminating his ideas.
He also noted that not all the articles in the book focus solely on economic issues, but also address Fidel’s thoughts on politics, science and humanism.
Meanwhile, Vasapollo highlighted the importance of the work for European readers, which not only explores the figure of Fidel Castro the economist, but also the revolutionary, and defender of cultural and human heritage. (PL)
