The long fight for Cuba

by AirTalk

Rum and revolution intertwine in Tom Gjelten's new book, "Bacardi and the Long Fight for Cuba: The Biography of a Cause." Following the winds of change as Bacardi goes from bartender to alcohol dynasty, Gjelton explores the political role of some of Cuba's most lush expatriates. Larry Mantle talks with Gjelton about the Bacardi family's impact on equal parts mojito and revolución.

Guest:

Tom Gjelten, NPR correspondent and author of "Bacardi and the Long Fight for Cuba: The Biography of a Cause."
