In 1957, Herbert L.Matthews of the New York Times, then considered one of the premiere foreign correspondents of his time, tracked down Fidel Castro in Cuba's Sierra Maestra mountains and returned with what was considered the scoop of the century. His heroic portrayal of Castro, who was then believed dead, had a powerful effect on American perceptions of Cuba, both in and out of the government, and profoundly influenced the fall of the Batista regime. When Castro emerged as a Soviet-backed dictator, Matthews became a scapegoat; his paper turned on him, his career foundered, and he was accused of betraying his country. In this fascinating book, New York Times reporter DePalma investigates the Matthews case to reveal how it contains the story not just of one newspaperman but of an age, not just how Castro came to power but how America determines who its enemies are. He re-creates the atmosphere of revolutionary Cuba and Cold War America, and clarifies the facts of Castro's ascension and political evolution from the many myths that have sprung up around them. Through a dramatic, ironic, in ways tragic story, The Man Who Invented Fidel offers provocative insights into Cuban politics, the Cuban-American relationship, and the many difficult balancing acts of responsible journalism.

City of Dust: Illness, Arrogance, and 9/11 (FT Press Science)

Anthony DePalma

Best price for this book: $ 22.39

In City of Dust, Anthony DePalma offers the first full accounting of one of the gravest environmental catastrophes in United States history. The destruction on 9/11 of two of the world's largest buildings unleashed a vortex of dust and ash that blotted out the sun and has distorted science, medicine and public policy ever since. The likely dangers of 9/11's massive dust cloud were evident from the beginning, yet thousands chose not to see. Why? As the sickening results of exposure became evident, many still refused to recognize them. Why? The consequences are still being tallied in the wasted bodies and disrupted lives of thousands who gave their all when the need was greatest, but whose demands for justice have been consumed by years of politics and courtroom maneuvers. Why?, separating reality from myth - and doing so with exceptional literary style and grace. DePalma covered Ground Zero for The New York Times for four years. DePalma introduces heroic firefighters, dedicated doctors and scientists, obsessive city officials, partisan politicians, aggressive lawyers, and compassionate judges and reveals the individual decisions that destroyed public trust, and the desperate attempts made to rebuild it. The dust that was the World Trade Center has changed everything it touched. This is the story of that dust, the 9/11 disaster after the disaster, and what it tells us about ourselves and our future.

El Hombre que Inventó a Fidel. Cuba, Castro y el New York Times (Spanish Edition)

Anthony DePalma, escribe una fascinante y bien documentada biografía de Herbert L. Matthews, el destacado periodista del New York Times que además de haber sido el autor de una histórica entrevista a Fidel Castro en 1957, fue corresponsal de guerra en la invasión de Abisinia por la Italia fascista y durante la guerra civil española. "Una vida tras las huellas de la verdad le había enseñado a Herbert Matthews que ninguna mentira es más poderosa que los mitos, y que ninguna verdad es más frágil que aquella que nadie quiere oír. Estaba convencido de que un mito había arruinado prácticamente sus cuarenta y cinco años de carrera como editorialista, reportero, y corresponsal; uno de los corresponsales extranjeros más influyentes y controvertidos del siglo XX. Culpaba a las verdades desagradables al oído por convertir su vida en un infierno. Matthews se había internado en las impenetrables montañas cubanas, de las que había emergido con una exclusiva sensacional para la portada de The New York Times: Fidel Castro, a quien se creía muerto hacía ya meses, se encontraba vivo y saludable, y había sido elegido para conducir la revolución en Cuba. Su firma, arrancada de las notas de Matthews, aparecía bajo una fotografía en la que se veía a Castro saliendo de los bosques con un rifle de mira telescópica y un rostro exento de malicia. La entrevista, llevada a cabo en el escondite de Castro en la Sierra, marcó un momento decisivo en la historia de Cuba y, pasando el tiempo, también en la de los Estados Unidos, puesto que señaló el primer escalón en el ascenso de Castro al poder. Por un tiempo, al menos, convirtió a Matthews y a Castro en figuras heroicas." La red de relaciones entre Castro, Matthews y el New York Times descritas con gran detalle por DePalma sirve de marco para apreciar los conflictos que enfrentan de manera cotidiana los medios de comunicación, en particular los que surgen de la confusión entre información objetiva y opinión partidista. Anthony DePalma es un destacado periodista del New York Times donde escribe regularmente desde hace mas de 20 años. Fue corresponsal y Jefe de la redacción en México y Canadá y ha cubierto eventos importantes en todo el hemisferio, incluyendo Cuba. También es autor del libro Here: A Biography of the New American Continent (PublicAffairs, 2001). DePalma vive en Montclair, NJ, con su esposa Miriam y sus tres hijos.
