Cuba: Order and Revolution

By Jorge I. Dominguez

Harvard University Press, 1978, 672 pp.

This lengthy analysis of twentieth-century Cuba reflects an admirable striving for evenhandedness. Three principal chronological divisions cover developments from independence to Machado (1902-33); the Batista era (1934-58); and the Castro revolution (1959-). The roles of the social groups, and the economic aspects, agriculture in particular, are well covered. A final chapter describes political culture.
