About this product
- DescriptionIn the years since the Cuban Revolution in 1959, eleven men have served as president of the United States, arguably the most powerful nation on earth. Yet ne of them has been able to effect any significant change in the stalemate between the United States and Cuba, its closest neighbour t to share a land border. Fifty Years of Revolution features contributions from an international Who's Who gallery of leading scholars. The volume adopts a uniquely npartisan attitude, a departure from this topic's generally divisive nature. Emerging from a series of meetings, conference panels, and lectures, the book coheres more strongly than the typical essay collection. Organised to analyse--t describe--Cuba's foreign relations, the work examines sanctions, the embargo, regime change, Guantanamo, the exile community, and more. Drawing from personal experiences as well as recently declassified documents, these essays update, summarise, and explain one of the prickliest political issues in the Western Hemisphere today.
