Fidel Castro came into power in Cuba on January 1, 1959. He obtained power through a 25-month revolution. Despite the use of guerilla warfare, the revolution was fairly bloodless. By this time Castro was a beloved figure in Cuba, regarded as a national hero. According to Sebastian Balfour's work Castro: Profiles in Power, Castro's ?objective was nothing less than the transformation of Cuba into a developed and independent nation. He intended to achieve this extraordinary feat by mobilizing the island's internal resources.? (64) After Castro took control of the country, his policies and allegiances put forth to achieve this goal took many twists and turns, and many of his decisions and actions can be termed ?paradoxical'. As Cubans experienced these contradictions and inconsistencies, they reacted in several different ways, including both supporting the government and turning their backs on it.
