Fidel Castro had held on to power longer than any other living national leader except .

Fidel Castro had held on to power longer than any other living national leader except Queen Elizabeth I. Though increasingly frail and rarely seen in public, Mr. Castro even then made clear his enduring mistrust of the United States. His legacy in Cuba and elsewhere has been a mixed record of social progress and abject poverty, of racial equality and political persecution, of medical advances and a degree of misery comparable to the conditions that existed in Cuba when he entered Havana as a victorious guerrilla commander in 1959. That image made him a symbol of revolution throughout the world and an inspiration to many imitators.
