Cuba : confronting the U.S. embargo by Peter Schwab( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this detailed and compassionate book, Peter Schwab tallies the extreme costs of the U.S. embargo to ordinary Cubans, ranging from hunger to medicine shortages. Schwab frames his study with a discussion of the issue of human rights as differently perceived by socialist and capitalist systems, which leads him to characterize the embargo as a human rights violation. To demonstrate how the embargo has affected all levels of social policy, he outlines its destructive effects on health care, religion, and relations with Europe and eastern Caribbean nations. Yet, the author maintains, Cubans have retained some agency despite the power of the United States. He traces ways in which Castro has successfully countered the effects of the embargo, and how Cubans have found room for political dissent, even in education and the arts. Schwab brings his findings to bear on a series of forecasts for Cuba's future, including likely scenarios in which the embargo would remain after Castro and what would result from the elimination of the embargo

Designing West Africa : prelude to 21st-century calamity by Peter Schwab( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many African countries are now described as "Fourth World"--Nations that essentially have no future. How could this have happened? Through the scope of the 1960s, the first decade of African Independence, Peter Schwab presents a compelling and provocative answer to this question. Designing West Africa tells the story of a pivotal decade in African history, when the fate of the continent was decided. Focusing on the six most visible leaders of the period - Sekou Toure, Kwame Nkrumah, and others - Schwab shows how Africa served as a ground for the larger international conflict of the Cold War. He does not fall back solely on blaming non-African involvement for the failure to build a viable leadership for the continent; rather, he critiques the African leaders themselves for their individual failings."--Jacket
