Fidel Castro’s recent abdication of power in Cuba was quickly in and out of the headlines, as was the ascension of his brother, Raúl, to the communist getaway’s executive office. The folks over at Foreign Policy, however, fill the media gap with a different perspective on the new Castro regime: that of Alina Fernández, Fidel’s estranged daughter. Fernández left Cuba in 1993, but still offers some surprisingly warm, if skeptical, appraisals of Raúl Castro’s personality as a leader and Cuban revolutionary.
