Description de l'ouvrage

3 décembre 1998
This timely study provides a re-examination of the achievements and failures of the Cuban revolution. The Cuban Revolution places the revolution firmly within the context of twentieth century Cuban history, beginning with the inauguration of the republic in 1902 to Castro's triumphant entry into Santiago de Cuba in 1959, and hightlights the factors -- such as a one-crop (sugar) economy and U.S. intereference in Cuban affairs -- which made Cuba susceptible to revolution. While identifying nationalism and the struggle for social justice as the legitimate forces behind the revolution, Perez-Stable also provides a fresh insight into the problems facing Castro's Cuba. Arguing that the revolution actually ended in 1970, she blames its defeat on the regime's profitable yet doomed dependence on the Soviet Union and on the failure of Cuba's leaders to diversity the country's economy, sustain development, or create democratic institutions. The Cuban Revolution also focuses special attention on Cuba's confrontation with the United States. This second edition has been updated to include an entirely new chapter with coverage of the changes affecting Cuba's policies and economy since the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the failure of communism in general, as well as a new preface, an up-to-date bibliography, and a thoroughly revised concluding chapter summing up the prospects and possibilities of Cuba's future in the twenty-first century.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Anaylsis of the Cuban Revolution 23 juin 1998
Par - Publié sur
Perez-Stable traces magnificantly the origins and failures of the Cuban revolution to underlying currents in Cuban history. This multifaceted work places an emphasis on the impact of a monocultural sugar economy, and the Imperialist legacy of the United States in the formation of a revolutionary atmosphere in Cuba. She incorporates numerous statistics and raw data to justify her claims. Though impeccably researched, the "Cuban Revolution" is at times difficult to read. The sheer thoroughness of the work at certain points overwhelms the reader, and clouds the lucidity of the work. Nevertheless, the excellent research outshines its periodic unintelligibility, especially in its institutional analysis of Castro's regime's. The book offers a new insight into the functions and paralysis of Cuban political institutions under Castro. In addition, the "Cuban Revolution" makes an important contribution to understanding of womens' role in Castro's consolidation of power. This is a must read for any serious student of Cuban History or Latin American Studies.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Good Book for anyone trying to understand the Revolution 9 mai 2000

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book provides an excellent background to social dynamics in Cuba before, during and after the Cuban Revolution, and does a good job analyzing its causes and consequences. It is indeed a must for anyone trying to understand the Revolution. The right wing exile community in Florida will not like this book because it is one of the few that consciously tries to be objective, but that should not dissuade other readers from purchasing this book. It is a bit too crammed with charts and statistics in places, which makes it cumbersome, but those sections are skimmable. I will certainly use it in my undergraduate classes.

The book is not well organized. The dates jump around making it confusing to follow the history of it. I have seen the newest version and notice that it is much better organized than this version.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best single volume account 4 mai 2010
Par Jorge Mañach - Publié sur
Pérez Stable has done a masterful job. My students like the book for its fairness and balance.Her historical chapters present a more nunaced view of prerevolutionary Cuba than is usually the case. I recommend it for class adoption.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Time To Look at Reality 6 février 2013
Par Ted Demmler - Publié sur
The time to look at reality of the region has long passed. The question is thus: How does Cuba under some form of state socialism, having experienced sweeping land reform, compare to THE COUNTRIES AROUND IT. The sweeping land reform allowed Cuba to completely mechanise sugar cane cutting and to have structural changes to its former agrain based economy. These types of books make no mention of this fact, nor the fact that countries such as Jamaica still "defend the machete." In terms of Sporting prowess Cuba is looked at in Latin America as a superpower. Cuba dominates the region in terms of Olympic Gold medals and overall performance. Cuba's economic problems stem primarily nfrom the inability to develop new dynamic exports, rather than to transform itself back to the Oligarch stagnant Monopoly system of its various neighbours. The fact that former Ronald Reagan Ministers support greater trade with Cuba, especially in Cuba's technological centres such as Bio Medicine and farm technology, speaks loudly for Cuba's potential. What have the other countries in the region got to offer? Little except widespread poverty and backwardness. Prior to the revolution the World Bank wrote a 900 + page document titled: "Report on Cuba" dated 1952. In it the IBRD lamented on Cuba's lack of teachers, scientists and engineers. All tied to the need to Industrialise and Diversify the economic base. The latter had been achieved by the 1990s but export diversity remained an ongoing problem. This is how Cuba needs to be looked at and NOT in terms of First World wealthy countries. Oh and another thing: this female writibng about Cuba needs to answer this: HOW DOES CUBA TREAT WOMEN & CHILDREN COMPARED TO US ALLIES SUCH AS SAUDI ARABIA, THE GULF STATES, JORDAN, EGYPT, EL SALVADOR, GUATEMALA, ET AL??? Seems to me that many countries in the South should be transformed INTO NEW CUBAS and NOT the other way around!!!
