To Make A World Safe For Revolution: Cuba's Foreign Policy

By Jorge Domínguez
Harvard University Press, 1989
365 pp. $35.00

The dean of this country's Cubanologists argues that although Cuba is a small country, it "has the foreign policy of a big power." Within the context of Soviet hegemony, Cuba has taken a number of independent international initiatives, shaped by a peculiar mixture of revolutionary militancy and political pragmatism. Domínguez analyzes Cuba's relations with revolutionary movements and revolutionary states, capitalist countries, the superpowers and other countries in the Americas and in the Third World. The final chapter, based on extensive interviews in Havana during the past five years, provides innovative insights about how Cuban foreign policy is made. An authoritative work.
