Description
Beginning with the founding of Havana in 1519, this history—coauthored by a Cuban historian and an American novelist—explores the making of the city and its people through revolutions, art, economic development, and the interplay of diverse societies. Through the years this "Paris of the Antilles" has maintained a level of prosperity unmatched in Latin America, even as it endured American occupation, the Revolution, the Bay of Pigs fiasco, and the Missile Crisis, and like the rest of its nation has now come to a crossroads. The authors bring together conflicting images of a city that melds cultures and influences to create an identity that is distinctly Cuban.
