Examining the international implications of U.S.-Cuba political and economic relations, these essays reveal a stark anomaly. While many of Cuba's relationships with American allies have evolved beyond the cold war paradigm, its relations with the United States have not. 
With essays covering U.S. foreign policy, U.S.-Cuba relations, international relations, and international economics, this collection highlights the striking tension between America's Cuba policy and the rest of the international community. Contributors argue that Washington's approach is anachronistic, irrational, and ultimately ineffective, and their discussion provides a comprehensive framework for judging not only the United States’ Cuba policy but also its foreign policy in general. Their analysis makes an important contribution to the debate about multilateralism versus unilateralism in U.S. foreign policy.

    Very useful studies of Cuba's foreign relations

    The book is a very useful collection of essays by various American academics on Cuba¿s relations with other countries. William LeoGrande writes about Cuba¿s relations with the USA, Nicola Miller about relations with Russia, Chris McGillion about relations with Europe and Japan, Peter McKenna and John Kirk about relations with Canada, Morris Morley about relations with Latin America and Michael Erisman about relations with China and Africa. The most important, because most threatening, of Cuba¿s relationships is with the US state, a relationship that reveals the US state¿s true nature. Ever since the Cuban revolution, the US state, whether staffed by the Republican or the Democrat wing of the capitalist party, has tried to enforce counter-revolution. It has used terror tactics - the USA still harbours the terrorists who have launched their murderous attacks on Cuba from the USA, killing 3,478 Cubans in total. And Bush¿s appointee to the UN, John Bolton, has said that Cuba ¿remains a terrorist and BW [biological weapons] threat to the United States¿ and such states, he said, ¿can expect to become our targets.¿ The US state has also used sanctions - it maintains its severest sanctions, including on medicines and food, against Cuba. Blair¿s crony Clinton signed the 1996 Helms-Burton act into law, an illegal imposition of US domestic law onto non-US countries and companies. It has also used its allies. In April 2003 the EU condemned Cuba for imprisoning 75 dissidents for receiving US support. EU leaders were acting as Washington¿s pawns, as Castro said. British citizens who in World War Two accepted financial and other support from Hitler got short shrift too. But all the US state¿s efforts to isolate Cuba have backfired ¿ it is the USA that is isolated, thus its unilateralism, its contempt for international law and treaties, its illegal threats of force, and its failed efforts to implicate Cuba in the `axis of evil¿. By contrast, Cuba has been elected to chair the 115-member Non-Aligned Movement for 2006, where it will continue to wage its battle of ideas, for nations¿ sovereignty and independence, against empire.
