The Political Name of Love - Croose Parry The Political Name of Love provides prophetic insight that anticipates the callous devastation caused by US imperialism being suffered by the Iraqi people today. U.S. foreign policies are exposed as hegemonic and ultimately self-defeating, while the terrible cost in human lives they have caused, and are causing around the world, is clearly documented.
The second part of the book focuses on relations between the United States and Cuba, detailing the overt and covert aggression against the island nation, and exploring the critical historic events that have influenced the evolution of Cuban socialist society.

The final part, explores Fidel Castro's critique of neo-liberal globalization, his alternative humanist vision, and the Cuban government's efforts to bring medical care and literacy to developing countries. Cuba's socialist aims and achievements are discussed as a more viable alternative to humanity's blind pursuit of growth, with its unsustainable level of environmental exploitation and degradation.


Renée-Marie Croose Parry fled Hitler's Germany in 1942 for Brazil, where she was incarcerated for some three months while the authorities decided that she was not a German spy. Just twenty years of age, she survived by teaching languages, saving enough to make her way to the United States. Her various experiences there included working in refugee resettlement for War Relief Services in New York and in the Office for Refugees, Migration and Voluntary Assistance in the Foreign Operations Administration in Washington, DC. Her father's role as the first ambassador of the German Federal Republic to France after World War II enabled her to obtain an inside view of the making of modern Europe. Creating four voluntary organizations in England, and then living for twenty years in the United States, with its hostile and cruel policies towards the island of Cuba, make for the philosophical and political background of this book.

''Renée-Marie Croose Parry makes no attempt to moderate her views in order to appeal to a more central audience. In doing so, she succeeds in writing one hell of a great polemic. ''Her style is enchanting and effortless, drawing the reader through a catalogue of the worst US atrocities before showing how, through the enlightened socialism of Cuba, the world can yet be saved.'' - Clare Hilton, Morning Star
''It is a book which not only informs with a wealth of hard, little known and little acknowledged factual material, it is one which inspires with the intellectual nobility of its rampaging criteria of concern for truth and justice.'' - John Papworth, Fourth World Review
''It should undoubtedly be read and kept for reference by anyone who is interested in a thoroughly documented account of the US's superpower role in the world, or of what has been happening in Cuba since 1959, or in an understanding of human evolution giving hope that it will not continue to be shaped by an urge to dominate and exploit.'' - James Robertson, author of The Sane Society
