Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beyond the throngs of tourists streaming through Central Havanas broad Prado Avenue, and outside the yoke of Castros 43-year-old Revolutionary program, there exists a parallel Cuba – a separate evolution of a people struggling to survive. With personal stories that depict a people torn between following the directives of their government and finding a way to better their lot, journalist Ben Corbett gives us the daily life of many considered outlaws by Castros regime. But are they outlaws or rather ingenious survivors of what many Cubans consider to be a forty-year mistake, a tangle of contradictions that have led to a stable instability?At a time when Cuba precariously walks on the ledge between socialism and capitalism, This is Cuba gets to the heart of this so-called outlaw culture, bringing readers into the living rooms, rooftops, parks, and city streets to listen to stories of frustration, hope, and survival.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 273-276) and index.
