Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Take a look at one of America's neighbors, an island of rich cultures from several sources: Spanish colonialism, African slavery, and proximity to the US.

A large number of Cuban exiles reside in the US, with a high concentration of expatriate Cuban communities in the state of Florida.

Fidel Castro gained power in 1959, declaring it a socialist republic in 1961.
