Cuban Studies 33

For nearly three decades, Cuban Studies has been the preeminent journal for scholarly work on Cuba. This volume continues the journal’s interdisciplinary tradition, with articles on race, class, and the Revolution of 1895; the role of literature in the formation of Cuban nationalism; and Spanish fiscal policies and Cuban tobacco in the nineteenth century, among others. A comprehensive archival report on the manuscript collection at the Biblioteca Nacional José Martí, a large book review section, and a thorough bibliography of works published in the field during the past year round out the volume.

Cuban Studies 32

The essays, research notes, book reviews, and bibliography in this volume continue the multidisciplinary journal’s tradition as the premier publication in the field. In addition to four articles on Cuban literature—focusing on the poetry of Amando Fernández and Ena Lucía Portela,, the novels of Roberto G. Fernández, and the “dirty realism” of Pedro Juan Gutierrez—there are essays examining the political afterlife of Eduardo Chibás, the spread and prevention of AIDS among Cuban-American women, and the Cuban Constitutions promulgated over the past forty years. A research note based upon recently declassified documents on the U.S.’s covert war against Cuba in the early 1960s completes the collection.
