Fidel Castro : my life : a spoken autobiography by Ignacio Ramonet( Book )

29 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fidel Castro is perhaps the most charismatic and controversial head of state in modern times. A dictatorial pariah to some, he has become a hero and inspiration for many of the world's poor, defiantly charting an independent and revolutionary path for Cuba over nearly half a century. Numerous attempts have been made to get Castro to tell his own story, but only now, in the twilight of his years, has he been prepared to set out the details for the world to read. Drawing on more than one hundred hours of interviews with journalist Ignacio Ramonet, a knowledgeable and trusted interlocutor, this spoken autobiography will stand as the definitive record of an extraordinary life lived in turbulent times.--From publisher description
Fidel Castro, biografía a dos voces by Ignacio Ramonet( Book )

50 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fidel Castro is perhaps the most charismatic and controversial head of state in modern times. A dictatorial pariah to some, he has become a hero and inspiration for many of the world's poor, defiantly charting an independent and revolutionary path for Cuba over nearly half a century. Numerous attempts have been made to get Castro to tell his own story. But only now, in the twilight of his years, has he been prepared to set out the details of his remarkable biography for the world to read. This book is nothing less than his living testament. As he told reporters, his desire to finish checking its text was the one thing that kept him going through his recent illness. He presented a copy of the book in its Spanish edition to his compadre President Hugo ChAvez of Venezuela. In these pages, Castro narrates a compelling chronicle that spans the harshness of his elementary school teachers; the early failures of the revolution; his intense comradeship with Che Guevara and their astonishing, against-all-odds victory over the dictator Batista; the Cuban perspective on the Bay of Pigs and the ensuing missile crisis; the active role of Cuba in African independence movements (especially its large military involvement in fighting apartheid South Africa in Angola); his relations with prominent public figures such as Boris Yeltsin, Pope John Paul II, and Saddam Hussein; and his dealings with no less than ten successive American presidents, from Eisenhower to George W. Bush. Castro talks proudly of increasing life expectancy in Cuba (now longer than in the United States); of the half million students in Cuban universities; and of the training of seventy thousand Cuban doctors nearly half of whom work abroad, assisting the poor in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. He is confronted with a number of thorny issues, including democracy and human rights, discrimination toward homosexuals, and the continuing presence of the death penalty on Cuban statute books. Along the way he shares intimacies about more personal matters: the benevolent strictness of his father, his successful attempt to give up cigars, his love of Ernest Hemingway's novels, and his calculation that by not shaving he saves up to ten working days each year. Drawing on more than one hundred hours of interviews with Ignacio Ramonet, a knowledgeable and trusted interlocutor, this spoken autobiography will stand as the definitive record of an extraordinary life lived in turbulent times

Alors qu'elle a longtemps été synonyme de libération par la diffusion du savoir et de la connaissance, la communication révèle aujourd'hui un nouveau visage : devenue idéologie oppressante du "tout-communication", grande superstition moderne, elle semble avoir atteint et dépassé son zénith, pour entrer dans une ère où toutes ses qualités se transformeraient en défauts, ses vertus en vices

L'explosion du journalisme : des médias de masse à la masse de médias by Ignacio Ramonet( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mais le passage de l'ère des médias de masse à celle de la masse des médias ne se fait pas sans dégâts. Établis au cours d'un siècle et demi de domination médiatique, les repères théoriques et les références pratiques du journalisme se révèlent, soudain, inadaptés. Sous les diktats de la vitesse, de l'immédiateté et du marché, les lois de l'information changent très vite. Alors que se multiplient les risques de manipulations et de bidonnages. Certains genres plébiscités par l'opinion publique, comme le journalisme d'investigation ou le journalisme de reportage, sont déjà en voie de disparition. Parce qu'ils coûtent cher. Et le nouveau système n'a pas encore mis au point un modèle d'entreprise de presse rentable. Entre-temps, des sites web novateurs continuent d'apparaître et de se renforcer. Mieux adaptés à l'écosystème nouveau, ils entrent en concurrence - et remplacent de plus en plus - les grands médias traditionnels en voie d'extinction

My First Life : Conversations with Ignacio Ramonet by Hugo Chávez Frías( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most important Latin American leaders of the twenty-first century, Hugo Chávez was a military officer who became a left-wing revolutionary. This book tells the story of his life until the moment he was elected President in 1998. His energy and charisma shine throughout the riveting and historically important story of his early years, describing how he slowly uncovered the reality of his country--hugely unequal, with the majority of its citizens living in indescribably impoverished conditions--and decided that he had to do something about it. Among other things, it is a fascinating account of his long-planned military conspiracy--the most significant in the history of Venezuela and perhaps of Latin America--that led up to his unsuccessful coup of 1992, and eventually to his popular electoral victory in 1998."--Provided by publisher
