Cuba contains interpretative essays on major topics in Cuban history, culture, and society. It also includes short, focused essays on artistic, literary, and nonfiction works, on major events, and on places of cultural significance. Adding to the product's appeal are approximately 300 full-color images.
This title breaks the mold of a reference encyclopedia. Rather than overwhelm the reader with thousands of entries and biographies, CUBA offers a close look at major themes that are emblematic to the country's unique history. Articles are authored by scholars from Cuba as well as the United States and other countries; collectively, they provide a comprehensive dialogue on Cuba's place in the world.
"...Alan West-Duran has produced a magnificent reference book, of value to anyone working seriously on Cuba, as well as to the general reader; and it is one that, thanks to elegant and thoughtful essays, is eminently readable throughout.""
