Event Type Speaker
Organizer/Author
Who: Brian Latell, Senior Associate in the Americas Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies; Latin America specialist at the CIA and National Intelligence Council, Foreign Intelligence Officer with US Air Force (1963-1998); National Intelligence Officer for Latin America, CIA (1990-1994); author of Mexico at the Crossroads and After Fidel
Event:
The question of succession looms as Fidel Castro begins to falter. In After Fidel, author Brian Latell gives a compelling behind-the-scenes account of the extraordinary Castro brothers and the impending dynastic succession of Fidel's younger brother Raul. Dr. Latell, a CIA officer who has followed Castro since the sixties, gives an unprecedented view into Fidel and Raul's remarkable relationship, revealing how they have collaborated in policy making, divided responsibilities, and resolved disagreements for more than forty years--a challenge to the notion that Fidel always acts alone. Dr. Latell has had more access to the brothers than anyone else in this country, and his briefs to the CIA have informed much of U.S. policy. Based on his knowledge of Raul Castro, Dr. Latell makes projections on what kind of leader Raul would be and how the shift in power might influence U.S.-Cuban relations. He also gives a riveting account of what life was like as a U.S. undercover agent in Cuba.
