This new edition of a classic text has come to be known as "the bible of Cuban
Studies." The 11th edition emphasizes transition concerns in a hemisphere without Castro, and more immediately, the continuing embargo of Cuba by the United States in the aftermath of a major change in the presidency. The nature of Cuban Communism has once again become a core issue for American people. Cuban
Communism has been updated to take account of changes in the 44 years of Castro's successful seizure of power in 1959.
