“Inside the Soviet camp.” Lets start by reflecting on that title. Castro in 1961 in the last chapter and here again in Africa and Latin America, is trying to assert himself as a leader of the “Non-aligned” movement. Why then, does Gott title these years, up to 1985 as “inside the Soviet camp?”
Terms? I would probably include Brezhnev, Ksyogin, Allende (in the picture above) Angola, Kissinger (just because he shows up and we know him so well) and certainly the Mariel Boat-lift. Carter is probably an important one as well and possibly Grenada and/or the Sandinistas.
Events in South Africa also deserve your scrutiny. Sorry for the skipping of chapter 6 but I think you’ll see it works out OK.
