Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is the best overview of the modern history of Cuba. Pérez is the most informed and articulate scholar of Cuba in the world, as far as I am concerned."—Dale Graden, University of Idaho

"Pérez has a deep knowledge of the subject matter and moves easily from one historical period to the next. The text is very effective because of Perez's easy-to-follow narrative, meticulous knowledge of Cuban affairs, and engaging style."—Jorge Chimea, Wayne State University
