Cuban–Latin American Relations in the Context of a Changing Hemisphere

Gary Prevost and Carlos Oliva Campos
ISBN: 9781604977592

This volume seeks to fill a very significant void in the recently published scholarship in English on Cuba’s relationship with Latin America. Cuban foreign policy has received attention over the years, but the bulk of the scholarship has been on its relationship with the United States. This book demonstrates conclusively that a decade into the twenty-first century, Cuba has achieved a position in the hemisphere that is far less isolated than at any previous time since the triumph of the Cuban revolution in 1959. That reintegration into hemispheric affairs is evident in many crucial areas like politics, economics, and culture. Read More..

This book translates and illuminates the specific machinery of Japan’s foreign relations, especially as it pertained to European trade and Christianity. In so doing, this study will situate the edicts––which are largely taken for granted, even though little has been studied––in Japan’s early modern history. Read More..

Marcia E. Facey
ISBN: 9781604977431

The increasing prevalence of contingent work has prompted concerns about its health implications for contingent workers.The research reported in this book casts light on the discrepant health-related findings by examining contingent work from the perspective of workers, through an exploration of how they experience and understand this form of work and how these experiences and understandings might affect health. The study revealed a strong discursive aspect to workers’ experience, and these discourses are the focus of this book. Read More..
