Revolution Is for the Children

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter discusses how childhood became of one of the primary sites of the struggle between the forces of Revolution and an emerging Counterrevolution in Cuba between 1960 and 1961. During these two tumultuous and increasingly violent years, the island's children were drawn into “adult” political struggles, directly impacting the dialectical relationship between radicalization and Counterrevolution even as their daily reality was transformed by their new salience in public life.

Keywords:   children, Fidel Castro, Cuban Revolution, counterrevolution, nation-making, radicalization
