Editorial Reviews

"Transgression and Conformity is foxy, courageous, well-informed.  It comes from first-hand knowledge of high-and-low life in Cuba in the nineties. Linda Howe proves that those who do Cuban studies without frequent visits to the island risk knowing nothing of relevance about the rough and tender moods and textures of its human drama."— Eduardo González, Johns Hopkins University
