WHAT IT'S ABOUT :
Diplomatic ties have resumed, embassies have opened, and the U.S.'s relationship with Cuba is stronger than it's been in decades. America's relationship with Cuba was looking up in 1959, too, when Fidel Castro made his first visit as premier to the U.S. and awarded 13 American foreign correspondents engraved gold medals for their work evading the repressive censorship of the Batista regime while reporting on the revolution.

In Reporting the Cuban Revolution: How Castro Manipulated American Journalists, Georgia State Professor Leonard Teel reveals the previously untold story of how these reporters' journalism changed the way Americans viewed the conflict and, unintentionally, altered U.S. foreign policy in Castro's favor. Reporting the Cuban Revolution is both a masterwork of narrative nonfiction and a deft analysis of the tension between propaganda and objectivity in the work of American foreign correspondents.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Leonard Teel is professor emeritus of communication at Georgia State University in Atlanta and the 2014 recipient of the Sidney Kobre Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Journalism Historians Association.
