Cuban Studies is the preeminent journal for scholarly work on Cuba. Each volume includes articles in English and Spanish, a large book review section, and an exhaustive compilation of recent works in the field.
Cuban Studies 40 features a broad spectrum of articles, including essays on: the role of race in the revolution of 1933; the subject of disaster in eighteenth-century Cuban poetry; developments in Cuban historiography over the past fifty years; a profile of the work of historian Jose Vega Sunol; and a remembrance of essayist and literary critic Nara Araujo, who also contributed an article on travel in Cuba for this volume.
Beginning with Cuban Studies 34 (2003), the publication is available electronically through Project MUSE¨. More information can be found at http://muse.jhu.edu/publishers/pitt_press/.
