Bardach knows Miami and Cuba from the inside out. We DID need to hear more of this information

Bardach knows Miami and Cuba from the inside out. We DID need to hear more of this information. The right-wing Cubans in Miami and the hard left ones in Havana who blindly follow the folks profiled here need to open their eyes to just the kind of people they're supporting. There are NO innocents in this equation. That's the point of the book.

Cuba Confidential book. Bardach presents the book as the history of internal conflict within various Cuban "families" in Miami and Havana, the three most notable being the Elian Gonzalez family, the Fidel Castro family and the larger "family" of the Cuban exile community in South Florida. It is the story of this latter family that make this book intriguing and, in my opinion, makes it worth reading "Cuba Confidential," published in 2003, is essentially piece of journalism and so parts of it seem a little dated in 2111.

book by Ann Louise Bardach  . Thank you Ms Bardach for a great book and although I know you lost many contacts, for writing this way. I applaud you, for your honesty and courage!!! Loving Cuba is hard love. In the Banana Republic regimes of Little Havana and the White House, it doesn't matter how many innocent civilians you kill nor how many children's lives you throw away as long as you do it in the name of fighting communism.

From America’s number one Cuba reporter, PEN award–winning investigative journalist Ann Louise Bardach, comes the big book on Cuba we’ve all been waiting for. An incisive and spirited portrait of the twentieth century’s wiliest political survivor and his fiefdom, Cuba Confidential is the gripping story of the shattered families and warring personalities that lie at the heart of the forty-three-year standoff between Miami and Havana.Famous to many Americans for her cover stories and media appearances, Ann Louise Bardach has been covering Cuba for a decade. She’s talked to the crooks, spooks and politicians who have made history, and to their hired assassins and confidants. Based on exclusive interviews with Fidel Castro, his sister Juanita, his former brother-in-law Rafael Díaz-Balart, the family of Elián González, the friends and family of the legendary American fugitive Robert Vesco, the intrepid terrorist Luis Posada Carriles, and the inner circles of Jeb Bush and the late exile leader Jorge Mas Canosa, Cuba Confidential exposes the hardball take-no-prisoners tactics of the Cuban exile leadership, and its manipulation and exploitation by ten American presidents.Bardach homes in on Fidel Castro and his cronies, taking us closer than we’ve ever been—and on the militant exiles who have devoted their lives, with CIA connivance, to trying to eliminate him. From Calle Ocho to Juan Miguel González’s kitchen table in Cárdenas, from Guantánamo Bay to Union City to Washington, D.C., Ann Louise Bardach serves up an unforgettable portrait of Cuba and its exiles.

Very colorful 'Cuba Confidential: Love and Vengeance in Miami.." It's a very interesting read, it tells of the love of the Cuban people and also the vengeance as to where they clash with one another and others. Miami is a diverse people, with the money, colorful parties, power and power struggling people it's a hard life if one doesn't have the money to keep up with the high rollers. So sad, and yet so true.

People seem to think journalists are biased when they disagree with them. As an anthropologist who has thoroughly studied these issues from both points of view, I thought this book was quite an eye opener. Annie Bardach does a fantastic job of culling through previously-classified information about Jorge Mas Canosa and exactly how deeply he corrupted the political and judical systems of Miami as well as our own representatives in Congress. How deeply the corruption runs is absolutely shocking, as is the information on Luis Posada Carriles, who she also managed to interivew. This guy is a sociopath and a terrorist, who thinks he's on a god-driven mission to assisinate Fidel Castro (sound familiar?). Fidel doesn't fare much better.
This book basically provides an in-depth examination of the actors on the extreme poles of what many people have described as a family feud. We DID need to hear more of this information. The right-wing Cubans in Miami and the hard left ones in Havana who blindly follow the folks profiled here need to open their eyes to just the kind of people they're supporting. There are NO innocents in this equation. That's the point of the book. If that makes people uncomfortable, GOOD!!! I hope this book helps disrupt the competing victim narratives that both sides are so good at producing.

I was fascinated with "Cuba Diaries: An American Housewife in Havana" by Isadora Tattlin and I thought a good next step would be Ann Louise Bardach's "Cuba Confidential." Though the books are quite different in make-up (travel diary vs. investigative jorunalism), they do complement each other quite well.

Bardach's work doesn't really have to be read in its entirety...it's sort of a stitched together compilation of her magazine work (she's a managing editor of Vanity Fair). That's not meant as a slam. I'm pointing it out because it allows you to skip some chapters that might not be your cup of tea (I skipped the chapter on Castro's would-be assassin, for example, and was still able to follow the narrative thread without missing a beat).

The author and her editors here do someone that I love to see in a book: there's an awesome guide to your reading that appears prior to Chapter One: a family tree of Fidel Castro; another of the Gonzalez family; and a third depicting photos of "the 15 passangers on the boat of Elian Gonzalez." It's hard to underestimate just how important these charts are to your reading.

This book incites (very) strong opinions. You don't need to look any further than the reviews posted here to get an indication of just how strong.

Bardach's honesty about American foreign policy regarding Cuba and the power that the corrupt Miami Mafia have on Florida, and after the last presidential election, national, politics has not won her many friends in the Miami Cuban population. Elian was used and manipulated by Marisleysis and her father, two people who shouldn't be entrusted with the life of a roach, much less a little boy. But the Miami Mafia was willing to sacrifice him to these two pathological personalities in order to score one against Castro. Then there is Orlando Bosch, a convicted terrorist who was paroled into the United States by Bush the First against the orders of his acting assistant attorney general. In the Banana Republic regimes of Little Havana and the White House, it doesn't matter how many innocent civilians you kill nor how many children's lives you throw away as long as you do it in the name of fighting communism.
The book is particularly critical reading now that Luis Posada Carriles has been caught and decisions are being made about what to do with him. The interviews with him show the truly corrupt nature of the man. He brags about how many fake passports he has and that he can enter the United States whenever he wants to. This book is even more topical now than when it was first written.

love it!

Very thorough -- to a fault -- look at the Miami Cuba Connection.

My Dad was a balsero, who eventually made it to Phila. where I was born, he went back to fight against Castro and we have never seen or heard from him again!I never got an opportunity to talk with him about all the politics involved in this Castro-Cuba thing but this answered so many questions. YOu're reading history but its not dull or stilted at all. Thank you Ms Bardach for a great book and although I know you lost many contacts, for writing this way. I applaud you, for your honesty and courage!!!
Great book for those who want to know the story of Cuba, Miami, and U.S.
