Item description for Cuban Revolution Reader: A Documentary History of Key Moments in Fidel Castro's Revolution by Julio Garcia Luis...

"Cuba has the same effect on US administrations as the full moon has on wolves: it's an obsession."-Wayne Smith, former US diplomat in Havana

The Cuban Revolution was one of the defining moments of the twentieth century, reaching far beyond the shores of the tiny Caribbean island.

From the euphoria of the early years of the revolution, to the devastating economic crisis that followed the collapse of the socialist bloc in the 1990s and beyond, the editor selects a broad range of material, providing a sweeping vision of revolutionary Cuba-its challenges, its defeats, its impact on the world. Covering forty-five decisive moments, such as the Bay of Pigs invasion and the October missile crisis, this new, expanded edition also features more recent events such as the demise of the Soviet Union, the visit of Pope John Paul II to Cuba, and the crisis over the child refugee Elin Gonzlez.

The editor's introductory essay takes a critical look Cuba's decades-long relationship with the Soviet Union, and a new preface offers a frank, up-to-date assessment of Cuba's post-Castro prospects.

Drawing on primary sources, this book is an outstanding resource for scholars and all those interested in gaining an understanding of Cuba's remarkable experience over the last four and a half decades.

Julio Garca Luis is one of Cuba's most prominent writers and historians. Formerly president of the Cuban Journalists' Union, he is currently dean of the School of Social Communications at the University of Havana.
