Cuba in Revolution: A History Since the Fifties - new book

ISBN: 9781861894021

ID: 978186189402

The recent retirement of Fidel Castro turned the world’s attention toward the tiny but prominent island nation of Cuba and the question of what its future holds. Amid all of the talk and hypothesizing, it is worth taking a moment to consider how Cuba reached this point, which is what Antoni Kapcia provides with his incisive history of Cuba since 1959.Cuba In Revolution takes the Cuban Revolution as its starting point, analyzing social change, its benefits and disadvantages, popular participation in the revolution, and the development of its ideology. Kapcia probes into Castro’s rapid rise to national leader, exploring his politics of defense and dissent as well as his contentious relationship with the United States from the beginning of his reign. The book also considers the evolution of the revolution’s international profile and Cuba’s foreign relations over the years, investigating issues and events such as the Bay of Pigs crisis, Cuban relations with Communist nations like Russia and China, and the flight of asylum-seeking Cubans to Florida over the decades.  The collapse of the Soviet Union between 1989 and 1991 catalyzed a severe economic and political crisis in Cuba, but Cuba was surprisingly resilient in the face of the catastrophe, Kapcia notes, and he examines the strategies adopted by Cuba over the last two decades in order to survive America’s longstanding trade embargo.A fascinating and much-needed examination of a country that has served as an important political symbol and diplomatic enigma for the twentieth century, Cuba In Revolution is a critical primer for all those interested in Cuba’s past—or concerned with its future.  Antoni Kapcia, Books, History, Cuba in Revolution: A History Since the Fifties Books>History, Reaktion Books

Cuba in Revolution - new book

ISBN: 9781861894021

ID: 4ce55253ce05bfb8feeeaa4e938aa1e7

A History Since the Fifties "Cuba Since the Fifties" provides a much-needed account of the Cuban Revolution and Cuba's history over its fifty years of existence since 1959. Antoni Kapcia unravels the complexities of the sometimes perplexing, and often misunderstood process of continual change, and explains the Revolution's remarkable survival after the deep and potentially terminal crisis brought about by the collapse of the Soviet Bloc in 1989-91. This book looks at the process of social revolution and the benefits and disadvantages that accrued as a result; the evolution of, and consensus about, ideology, and Castro's elevation to national leader; popular participation in the Revolution; the Revolution's changing international profile and relations; the politics of defence and dissent; and finally the crisis post-1990 which generated the mechanisms of survival and adaptation in the face of America's trade embargo.The book is aimed at the wide readership following modern and contemporary world politics, modern political history, Latin American and developing world history and politics, and radical politics.
