The New Cuban Presence in the Caribbean

Edited by Barry B. Levine

Westview Press, 1983, 274 pp.

Fifteen essays consider the history, nature and extent of Cuban influence in the Caribbean, Mexico and South America, and Cuban relationships with revolutionary parties elsewhere, in the context of the Soviet Union and the Third World. An essay by Robert Pastor on Cuba and Russia notes that "the Soviets do not tell the Cubans what to do, but they do let the Cubans know what they cannot do, and the Cubans accept that."
