"A timely publication given the enormous changes that have swept across the Latin American continent in recent years ... The authors document how Cuba has now restored full diplomatic relations with all of the Latin American countries and has been welcomed into all of the regional organisations that it seeks to enter. ... the book makes a useful contribution to the debate around the future of the Socialist system in the light of the internal reform process that was under way as the book went to press. The book was published before the recent Party Congress but it correctly predicts the course that Raúl Castro has set, emphasising the economic factors that need to be addressed if the revolution is to survive." – International Journal of Cuban Studies
Cuban–Latin American Relations in the Context of a Changing Hemisphere by Gary Prevost and Carlos Oliva Campos
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.
