In the first book to explore the cultural politics of Cuba's epic military engagement in the Angolan civil war, Christabelle Peters shows how the internationalist mission profoundly influenced Cuban thinking on the African cultural element in national identity. Drawing from multiple sources, including films, political speeches, literature, and autoethnography, Cuban Identity and the Angolan Experience reveals the underlying mythological context for Operation Carlota. By tracing the evolution of slave iconology during the first five—most ideological—years of the intervention, Peters reveals a parallel shift in Cuba's regional identification from Latin American to Caribbean. 

Christabelle Peters is a visiting research fellow at the Centre for Research on Cuba at the University of Nottingham.
