Cuba is a relatively small country, but with the foreign policy of a major league international player. It has carried out such a policy since the start of Castro's 1959 revolution. Because of its close alliance with the Soviet Union, by the early to mid 1960's it had the external resources, internal conditions, and lack of significant US opposition to begin to visibly impact conditions throughout the world; from Latin America, to Africa and Asia. At times, the close relationship to the USSR (and corresponding partnership with Communist Bloc countries) made many perceive its autonomy in foreign affairs as close to zero. Viewed from the perspective of analysts in the American Department of State, it is easy to see Castro's Cuba as an unofficial province of the Soviet Union. In this book, Dr. Céspedes sees a Cuban foreign policy that has been both aggressive ideologically, militaristic, yet highly pragmatic. The Castro brothers saturated the media with altruistic images of themselves in a campaign to justify and encourage, or directly spread, radical change. A totalitarian state was created where Fidel Castro could claim "unanimous support" for revolutions which could defy the United States and its allies. Participation in the state-orchestrated exportation of Marxism quickly became a requirement for existence in a Cuba that prohibited all forms of dissent. Devoted leftists who aided Castro's rise, but later resisted disastrous economic policies and challenged the one-party state, found themselves silenced, imprisoned, or executed. Using previously unexplored sources, Dr. Céspedes constructs a compelling and detailed exposé which focuses on Cuban political subversion throughout the world, either through direct military intervention, or disguised as development aid for health, economic, and civic programs. This is a must read for history students and those wishing to study for the IB Americas Paper 3 Exam written by a prominent historian, IB examiner and content contributor, Dr. Juan R. Céspedes.

Today, Castro's regime appears vulnerable to breakdown. His government cannot deliver the minimum amounts of foodstuffs guaranted in citizens' rationing cards, and the achievements of the Revolution, including fill employment, access to education, and quality health care, are increasingly compromised. Amid the government's deterioration, questions abound about just what will happen next: will the fidelista regime finesse its survival or will a new order emerge in Cuba during the 1990s? "This anthology is a significant contribution in that it updates our knowledge of Cuba and helps to situate it in a broader historical framework."--Rhoda Rabkin, author ofCuban Politics "A balanced, first-rate set of studies that illuminate why Cuba has not yet followed the path of its erstwhile communist allies in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, while analyzing the political, econimic, and social strains that a Cuba in crises is currently experiencing."--Edward Gonzalez, author ofCuba Under Castro

This volume relies on the natural chronology of historical events to organize and narrate the story as the nation's leaders saw it. Using this narrative approach, the tangled and often confusing nature of foreign affairs is uncovered without the illusion that in the past, American foreign relations took place in a well-ordered fashion. From this history, students will understand the plight of present-day policymakers who encounter an array of problems that are rarely susceptible to simple analysis and ready solution.

The story of Fidel Castro has few parallels in contemporary history. None of the outstanding Third World leaders of the twentieth-century played such a prominent and restless part on the international stage and none survived as head of state for as long. Over almost 50 years, he was one of the most controversial political figures in the world, and his legacy has yet to be fully evaluated. Some of his most cherished plans were realized and are a model for many Third World countries. Yet despite enormous sacrifices by Cubans, his grand vision remains unfulfilled and its continued pursuit is full of risks. The fully revised third edition of this respected political biography provides the first full retrospect of Castro’s remarkable career right up to his illness and withdrawal from power in February 2008, incorporating analysis of: the renewed crackdown on dissidents in Cuba from the mid 1990s on the major geopolitical reconfiguration of Latin America in the late 1990s, and the new Cuban-Venezuelan relationship under Hugo Chavez the Helms Burton Act and the continuing US embargo The Cuban economy in the first decade of the new millennium It also revisits earlier events in Castro’s career, for instance the various assassination plots against him , the Cuban missile crisis and the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in the light of documents released by Cuba and the US over the past decade and a half.

Visions Of Power In Cuba

In the tumultuous first decade of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro and other leaders saturated the media with altruistic images of themselves in a campaign to win the hearts of Cuba's six million citizens. In Visions of Power in Cuba, Lillian Guerra argues that these visual representations explained rapidly occurring events and encouraged radical change and mutual self-sacrifice. Mass rallies and labor mobilizations of unprecedented scale produced tangible evidence of what Fidel Castro called "unanimous support" for a revolution whose "moral power" defied U.S. control. Yet participation in state-orchestrated spectacles quickly became a requirement for political inclusion in a new Cuba that policed most forms of dissent. Devoted revolutionaries who resisted disastrous economic policies, exposed post-1959 racism, and challenged gender norms set by Cuba's one-party state increasingly found themselves marginalized, silenced, or jailed. Using previously unexplored sources, Guerra focuses on the lived experiences of citizens, including peasants, intellectuals, former prostitutes, black activists, and filmmakers, as they struggled to author their own scripts of revolution by resisting repression, defying state-imposed boundaries, and working for anti-imperial redemption in a truly free Cuba.
