Product description

Review

"Excellent and... evenhanded.... [It] packs a phenomenal amount of complex history into clear and simple prose." --Los Angeles Times (review of the first edition) "Sweig's useful ready reference is highly recommended." --Library Journal (review of the first edition) "Splendid...Sweig displays a talent for succinctness and clarity, as well as a subtle, deep knowledge of Cuban affairs." --Foreign Affairs (review of the first edition) "For several years, Julia Sweig, America's premier expert on Cuba, has been my guide for all matters related to this beautiful, cursed, and consequential island nation. This book - economical, information-packed, and exceedingly well-written - is Sweig's indispensable contribution to our knowledge of Cuba at a particularly tumultuous time in its history." --Jeffrey Goldberg, National Correspondent, The Atlantic --This text refers to the paperback edition.
