Spanning the history of the island from pre-Columbian times to the present, this highly acclaimed survey examines Cuba's political and economic development within the context of its international relations and continuing struggle for self-determination. The dualism that emerged in Cubanideology - between liberal constructs of patria and radical formulations of nationality - is fully investigated as a source of both national tension and competing notions of liberty, equality, and justice. Author Louis A. Perez, Jr., integrates local and provincial developments with issues of class, race, and gender to give students a full and fascinating account of Cuba's history, focusing on its struggle for nationality.
Louis A. Perez, Jr., is J. Carlyle Sitterson Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the author of Cuba in the American Imagination (2008), On Becoming Cuban (2007), and The War of 1898 (1998).

Editorial Reviews

"Perez has a deep knowledge of the subject matter and moves easily from one historical period to the next. The text is very effective because of Perez's easy-to-follow narrative, meticulous knowledge of Cuban affairs, and engaging style." --Jorge Chimea, Wayne State University
