This collection contains full-text English translations of speeches, interviews, and press conferences issued by Fidel Castro from 1959 to 1996. These are based on the records of the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS), a U.S. government agency responsible for monitoring broadcast and print media in countries throughout the world. The Department of Research of the Radio Martí Program, part of the U.S. Information Agency, undertook the task of digitizing FBIS reports from 1959 through the end of the 1980s.
