This paper discusses how the failure of the U.S. to intervene against the Cuban Revolution of the 1950s helped Castro succeed in overthrowing the Batista government and instituting a Communist regime on the island. It argues that it was not just the failure of the U.S. to intervene when Castro came to power, but its failure to intervene during his rise to power that helped him succeed.

From the Paper:

"The United States was not completely happy with Castro's predecessor, Fulgencio Batista. But Batista's government, nonetheless, had arrested Castro on July 26, 1953, when Castro had already failed in an attempt to conquer a government barracks in Santiago de Cuba in Oriente province, a large and important area. Castro was then imprisoned on the Isle of Pines. Castro was released, however, two years later. The years in prison left him more eager than before to reform government in Cuba."
