Dr. Marquez-Sterling speaks on his recently published book Cuba 1952-1959: The True Story of Castro's Rise to Power. The author was a witness to history in the seven critical years when the struggle for Cuba was not just between Fulgencio Batista and Fidel Castro, but also a third force that advocated for a peaceful, democratic resolution. Elections were held on November 3, 1958 and Dr. Sterlings father, Carlos Marquez-Sterling, was a candidate for President. His father was predicted to win by a landslide, but there was rampant electoral fraud, due to Batista and the Army. Six weeks after the election, Batista fled Cuba and Castros revolution took over the country.
