Revolution Is for the Children

Anita Casavantes Bradford

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter discusses how children and discursive representations of childhood became central to the revolutionary government's efforts to both manage a changing relationship with the United States and mobilize a broader pool of citizens in support of its initiatives. The authoritarian refashioning of Martí's democratically inspired politics of childhood facilitated Castro's evolution into an autocratic and paternalistic leader who exercised an unprecedented emotional hold over the masses.

Keywords:   Fideal Castro, Cuban Revolution, children, revolutionary government, political freedom
