Description
There are few international relationships that rival in intimacy, passion, and tension than that between the Cuba and the United States. Cuba expert Daniel Erikson draws on extensive visits to Cuba and conversations with government officials and opposition leaders, plus key players in Washington and Florida, to offer a detailed portrait of a small country with very large importance to America. Though Cuba remains "our last Cold War enemy," and is now closely allied to Hugo Chavez's Venezuela as it once was to the USSR, it has quietly become a major trade partner for American agribusiness. Erickson discusses how the "next revolution" could see Cuba become a multibillion-dollar capitalist economy, or continue as a socialist dystopia, or lapse into civil war.

"Dan Erikson has made an issue and a set of characters many of us thought permanently frozen dance out from the pages of his wonderfully refreshing look at the recent U.S.-Cuba madness. There are original anecdotes and portraits in this book that I haven't seen anywhere else. Whether writing about Guantanamo, Havana, Miami, or the shenanigans in Washington, Dan's reporting, analysis, and his wry sense of irony make The Cuba Wars a lot more fun to read than the serious title implies."óJulia Sweig
