Cuba: The International Dimension
Cuba: The International Dimension
Edited by Georges A. Fauriol and Eva Loser
Transaction, 1990, 380 pp.

The companion to an earlier volume that assessed the domestic record of thirty years of Fidel Castro's role in Cuba, this volume reviews Cuba's role in foreign affairs. Fourteen Cuba specialists, most but not all of them sharing the strongly anti-Castro approach of the Cuban American National Foundation (the project's sponsor), provide a cross-sectional view. Although events in the Soviet Union, Nicaragua and Cuba itself have already dated the volume, it contributes significantly to documenting and analyzing Cuba's impact and choices. The chapter by Jorge Perez-Lopez on Cuba's foreign economic relationship is especially illuminating and points toward what may well be the crucial factor in shaping the next phase of Cuba's policy.
