Viewing the continuing radio war between Radio Havana and the Voice of America as a vital element in Cuban and American ideological strategy during the past quarter-century, the author traces the history and present circumstances of the conflict. He sees this war as "essentially a confrontation between competing conceptions of democracy." The book is a valuable source work, although some readers may be bemused by its tracing Cuba and other "peoples' democracies" back to the tradition of Rhode Island and Roger Williams.
