Choice

Times Literary Supplement
An admirable book; Ada Ferrer has attentively examined the dynamics between the racial groups involved in Cuba's struggle towards independence.... [She] meticulously documents these struggles and provocatively reinterprets them. Most impressive is her ability to keep her analytical eye close to the Cuban ground.
American Historical Review
Ferrer's book is a significant contribution to the historiography on race and race relations in Cuba, its revolutionary movements, and on the construction of Cuban nationhood.
Latin American Research Review
Ferrer is particularly successful at showing how notions of freedom, citizenship, race, labor, and cubanidad were all contested social constructs that were forged in the context of Cuba's two wars for independence.
Journal of American History
This book is the best overview in English of the role of race in the Cuban independence movement.
Journal of Military History
This is a painful story that has never been told before, because race has never been placed so squarely at the center of the Cuban revolution, where it belongs.
Times Literary Supplement
An admirable book; Ada Ferrer has attentively examined the dynamics between the racial groups involved in Cuba's struggle towards independence.
