About this product
- DescriptionUncritically lauded by the left and impulsively deunced by the right, the Cuban Revolution is almost universally viewed one-dimensionally. It is high time for a more balanced approach to the subject - a critical, left-wing approach. Having grown up in Cuba in the 1950s, Samuel Farber is one of the only left-wing historians who is t enamoured the Cuban Revolution, but sees it in all its complexity. Cuba Since the Revolution of 1959 thus takes a fresh approach to the political legacy of the Cuban Revolution, analysing both its positive and negative implications for the left.
- Author BiographySamuel Farber was born and raised in Marianao, Cuba, and came to the United States in February 1958. He obtained a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California at Berkeley in 1969 and taught at a number of colleges and universities including UCLA and, most recently, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, where he is a Professor Emeritus of Political Science. His scholarship on Cuba is extensive and includes many articles and two previous books: Revolution and Reaction in Cuba, 19331960 (Wesleyan University Press, 1976) and The Origins of the Cuban Revolution Reconsidered (University of North Carolina Press, 2006). He is also the author of Before Stalinism. The Rise and Fall of Soviet Democracy (Polity/Verso, 1990) and Social Decay and Transformation. A View From The Left (Lexington Books, 2000). Farber was active in the Cuban high school student movement against Fulgencio Batista in the 1950s, and has been involved in socialist politics for more than fifty years.
