Volume one, published in 1960, is an analysis of the rise of Fidel Castro and his followers, the reactions of the Organization of American States, the legal repercussions with regard to the Monroe Doctrine and the relations with the Latin American countries as well as the US embargo on exports to Cuba, which exists to this day. Volume 2 contains a brief analysis of the events and repercussions in Volume one and expands to include the events through to mid-1963. In that period the US, under John F. Kennedy, attempted to depose Castro as evidenced by the disastrous 'Bay of Pigs' attack. Later, the whole world held its breath, fearing a nuclear war between the US and the USSR when the US navy was instructed to blockade Cuba after evidence of a buildup of Russian nuclear weapons became evident to the US intelligence services. The 'October Crisis' which pitted JFK against Krushchev in a battle of wits is analysed as well as the actions of the UN and other countries which sided with Cuba. Also present are communications between the interested parties - JFK, Krushchev and U Thant, Secretary General of the United Nations .
