Summary While most writing on Cuba seeks to analyse the island's socialist experiment from the perspective of either its internal dynamics or international relations, this book attempts to understand the revolutionary process as part of a counter-current against neoliberal globalisation. Now that neoliberalism is in crisis, Cuba's promotion of socialist values is finding a renewed relevance.
In this fascinating study Lambie argues that Cuba is again becoming a symbol, and practical example, of socialism in action across Latin America and beyond. This book is essential reading for students of politics and Latin American Studies. --Book Jacket.
