The Cuban revolution 4

In this fourth session of the lecture, Bensaïd focuses on the transition in Cuba. Bensaïd tackles the question of political power as the first instrument to initiate social transformations, which brings the problem of bureaucratisation as a danger in the process of transition. In his analysis and discussion, Bensaïd makes comparisons with Nicaraguan Revolution and Russian Revolution. The session ends with a discussion of the nationalisation of imperialist and big companies in 1960 and 1961.
