Abstract

In this book, winner of the 2001 MACLAS Whitaker Prize, Charles D. Ameringer brings a full scholarly apparatus to bear on an important eight-year period of Cuban history. His well-written, analytical study should interest both the general and the specialist reader. Branching out in references to anterior and posterior developments to the auténtico years, Ameringer gives readers a good idea of the development of Cuba in the twentieth century. His research includes newspaper articles and radio broadcasts, government reports both from Cuba and the United States (State Department, Armed Forces, etc.), documents of the Organization of American States and of the Inter-American Regional Organization of Labor-International Confederation of Free Trade Unions, documents of the Auténtico Party, interviews with government and business leaders, as well as exhaustive incorporation of secondary sources (the work previously done on Cuba). The book is divided into ten chapters, inclusive of conclusion, and 21 pages of Notes, fives pages of Bibliography, and an Index of ten pages.
