Carmelo Mesa-Lago is Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of Economics and Latin American Studies at the University of Pittsburgh.
“The papers discuss the causes of the downfall of the Soviet bloc nations, the impact of their fall on Cuba, and the implications of these historic changes for Latin America.”—Journal of Economic Literature

“This is a remarkable book in the field of Cuban studies for it explains the reasons, circumstances, and consequences of the breakdown of the Cuban economy as it confronted the reduction and ultimate total cut-off of Soviet-Russian aid.”—Journal of Comparative Economics

“For a sober and detailed examination of the immediate background of the current situation in Cuba there is no better place to begin than with the Carmelo Mesa-Lago volume. This outstanding contribution looks at the impact of the collapse of Cuba's most important alliances and examines the reasons Cuba escaped the domino effect that led to the rapid demise of communism in Eastern Europe.”—Foreign Affairs

“No serious student of Cuban politics and the Latin American left should miss this book.”—Revista Interamericana de Bibliografía
