Mike Haynes: Columbus, the Americas and the rise of capitalism
International Socialism Journal nr. 57, dec 92 – side 55
Note: Columbus remains as controversial now as when he discovered the Americas 500 years ago. Mike Gonzalez uncovers the myths of Columbus, myths which were first formulated in the years immediately after his voyages and which have been perpetuated down to our own time. Mike Haynes looks at Columbus from another angle, tracing the effect of the discovery of the Americas on the development of European capitalism. Together these articles strike a decisive blow to the apologists for imperialism and propose a critique of Third Worldist and Green commentators who see the indigenous societies of Latin America as a model for change today.

Mike Haynes looks at Columbus from another angle, tracing the effect of the discovery of the Americas on the development of European capitalism.

Lance Selfa: Mexico after the Zapatista uprising
International Socialism Journal nr. 75, jun 97 – side 61
Note: Mexico is often cited as a successful economy that proves the free-marketeers' case. Lance Selfa thinks otherwise. His careful analysis of the crisis in the Mexican economy and the political upheavals that it has provoked shows that the very forces which Mexico's rulers thought they had consigned to the early history of their republic ­ peasant rebellion and working class unrest ­ will reappear to threaten them once again.

International Socialism Journal nr. 136, okt 12 – side 221
Note: Sam Farber, Cuba Since the Revolution of 1959: A Critical Assessment (Haymarket, 2011), $24

Socialist Review nr. 323, mar 08 – side 4
Note: Fidel Castro has resigned from his position as head of the government of Cuba after 49 years in charge.

Mike Gonzalez: Cuba efter Castro
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 263, dec 06 – side 8

Note: Is Cuba free from capitalism? Chris Harman looks at the novels of a writer who does not think so
Jørn Andersen: Castros vej til magten
Socialistisk Revy nr. 3, apr 98 – side 26

Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 86, nov 92 – side 10

Mike Gonzalez: Can Castro survive?
International Socialism Journal nr. 56, sep 92 – side 83
Note: US imperialism has its greedy eye on Cuba. Every socialist will hope that Cuba remains a thorn in the American ruling class's side. But does that mean uncritical support for Castro's repressive regime? Mike Gonzalez analyses a turning point in history.
Torben Mønster: Socialisme og den tredje verden
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 5, feb 85 – side 4

Peter Binns + Mike Gonzalez + Alex Callinicos: Cuba, socialism and the third world. A rejoinder to Robin Blackburn (1980)
International Socialism Journal nr. 10, sep 80 – side 93
Note: Responding to Robin Blackburn’s contribution to the debate in these pages on Cuba, presents us with certain problems. While he himself raises a few factual objections to our account, some of which – including the role of the Communist Party and the working class – are serious and will be considered below the most significant points for him are clearly those of emphasis. According to him we dwell too long on Cuba’s economic structure, on the regimented and bureaucratised aspects of the regime, and not enough on its popularity, but that judgement depends on what political task he regards as most significant. As we shall see there are sharp differences between Blackburn and ourselves here, both as regards workers’ revolution and socialism in general and as regards the perspectives for third World revolution today.

Peter Binns + Mike Gonzalez: Cuba, Castro and Socialism

Note: Twenty one years have passed since the time Castro’s rebel army, backed by a loose coalition of intellectuals – the 26th July Movement – destroyed the US-backed Batista regime and began to effect fundamental changes in Cuban society. What exactly did it achieve? Does it provide the Third World with an alternative and viable road to socialism to that of Moscow’s stultifying bureaucrats? Can its methods be repeated elsewhere?

Sergio Junco + Nick Howard: Yanqui No! Castro No! Cuba Si!
International Socialism Journal (1st series) nr. 7, dec 61 – side 31
Note: A great deal of debate has been taking place concerning the nature and development of present Cuban society; not surprisingly, a number of half-truths have been used by both the capitalist attackers of Castro and by the defenders of the Cuban regime, particularly those defenders of the regime who are followers of the Russian bureaucratic line.
Revolution in Cuba
International Socialism Journal (1st series) nr. 3, dec 60 – side 4
Note: As this editorial was being written news was coming in of American preparations for the invasion of Cuba. By the time it is read the history of the Cuban revolution will have been taken a stage further. But some of the key reasons for defending the Cuban revolution will remain as valid as they are now.

Note: Siden 1935 har mange opfattet folkefrontsstrategien som den eneste mulige vej til socialisme i den ikke-gennemindustrialiserede del af verden. ANC’s kamp mod apartheidregimet i Sydafrika bygger også på folkefrontsstrategien. Men hvad er erfaringerne?
