The Cuban revolution 3

In this third session, Bensaïd focuses on 1959 from the point of view of three processes. Firstly, he depicts the process of breaking with the Cuban bourgeoisie, and the power structures in the beginning of '59. Secondly, he analyses the process of differentiation and rupture with the bourgeois elements in the government; and thirdly, he recounts the process of confrontation with imperialism, which goes to some extent parallel with the process of radicalisation of the Cuban revolution.
