The Rise and Rule of Fidel Castro

Rise of Castro

The rise of Castro is best studied following completion of the ActiveHistory study unit "What are the most common methods and conditions that explain the rise of dictatorships?", since that unit allows students to build up an overall theory about the nature of dictatorships that can then be tested against this particular object study.

In this self-contained worksheet, students are provided with detailed information relating to the rise of Castro and a range of tasks to help them answer the key question.
