Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
Justice is sometimes too inconvenient. The Cuban Five discusses the case of these five Cubans who were wrongfully charged with conspiracy charges and put behind bars with the key thrown away. Drawn from the pages of the Militant, this case and the call of corruption lodged against it are explored through articles with black and white photography throughout. For those who wish to learn more about miscarriages of justice, The Cuban Five is an excellent start to learning about the case.
