Abstract

Book Review. The main focus of the book is putting the reforms that have been taking place in Cuba, which have gone further in terms of economics than politics, into a comparative perspective. The book aims to analyze the potential directions for change and the costs and limitations in implementation. It examines aspects of Cuba’s economy, investment, political leadership, its foreign policy, and the impact of the post-Soviet collapse. But departing from earlier literature that has mainly focused on political issues and Cuba-U.S. tensions, this collection gives a voice to racial identities and inequalities, social security reform, and other aspects of Cuban society and culture.
