Cuba in the World

Cuba in the World is an important addition to the rich literature on the Cuban revolution and serves as a handy reference for specialists on Castro's revolution.
Revista Interamericana de Bibliografia

Since the 1970s, Cuba has greatly expanded its participation in world affairs. What changes in its leadership, economy, and armed forces explain this increased participation? How do Cuban ties with Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Africa, Israel, and the socialist countries reveal Cuban purposes and affect U.S.-Cuban rapprochement? Cuba in the World addresses these and other important questions in the most comprehensive and authoritative review of Cuban foreign policies since the Revolution.
