The triumph of the 1979 revolution in the Caribbean island of Grenada had “importance for all struggles around the world,” said Maurice Bishop, its central leader.

Invaluable lessons from that workers and farmers government, overturned in a Stalinist-led coup, can be found in this collection.

Introduction by Steve Clark, 8-page photo section, map, index. 

Appendices: Two statements by the Cuban government and a speech by Fidel Castro on the October 1983 events in Grenada.

 
“We have in this volume the literary report of the leading actor. We hear Bishop acclaiming, with justifiable pride, the social and economic achievements of the revolution. ” —Monthly Review 

Maurice Bishop Speaks ends with three appendices addressing the role of Cuba…including Castro’s speech on 14 November honoring the Cuban dead and Bishop’s memory. Castro eulogized Bishop: “It was impossible to imagine anyone more noble, modest and unselfish…he was a true revolutionary—conscientious and honest. —Latin American Research Review
