(Newser) – Fidel Castro usually likes to express his political views in rambling essays and hours-long speeches, but a new book now breaks down El Comandante's philosophy into a handy-dandy A-to-Z format. The Castro dictionary, containing entries such as "Unemployment" and "History," is targeted at Cuban academics, reports AP. Unlike Mao's Little Red Book, though, this one can't be tucked into a pocket. It weighs in at 339 pages.
