Description

Lou Perez's "Cuba" has been a welcome addition to the Cuban history course since it first appeared. The Second Edition has solidified its place as the leading choice among teachers of modern Cuban history, and, based on events over the past nine years, the text has now been updated and revised. Perez has added new material covering the years from 1995 through 2004 in the chapter on Socialist Cuba (the last chapter). Further, the book ends with a political chronology, which has been revised and updated; the extensive bibliography been condensed where necessary (through elimination of outdated or superseded entries) and expanded to highlight the scholarship of the past decade (some of it by Perez himself). He has also condensed material in the body of the text where possible. The new edition features a slightly larger format and for the first time, photos in the text and the inclusion of two new maps. Sales of the previous editions have been extremely good, and there's every reason to think that a new Third edition will have an even more enthusiastic reception.show more
