From the Publisher"Quoting both U.S. political leaders and the popular press [and] reproducing many period cartoons, Pérez demonstrates that the Cuba that took shape in the American imagination beginning in the early nineteenth century was constructed around metaphors of proximity, neighborhood, and racialism."
