In this important and timely volume, one of today’s foremost experts on Cuban history and politics fills a significant gap in the literature, illuminating how Cuba’s sovereign electoral democracy underwent a tumultuous transformation into a military dictatorship. Dr. Lillian Guerra draws on her years of research in newly opened archives and on personal interviews to shed light on the men and women of Cuba who participated in mass mobilization and civic activism to establish social movements in their quest for social and racial justice and for more accountable leadership. Beautifully illustrated with archival photographs, this volume is a stunning addition to Latin American history and politics.
