Cuba and the U.S. empire : a chronological history by Jane Franklin( )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1959 Cuban Revolution remains one of the signal events of modern political history. A tiny island, once a de facto colony of the United States, declared its independence, not just from the imperial behemoth ninety miles to the north, but also from global capitalism itself. Cuba's many achievements--in education, health care, medical technology, direct local democracy, actions of international solidarity with the oppressed--are globally unprecedented. And the United States, in light of Cuba's humanitarian efforts, has waged a relentless campaign of terrorist attacks on the island and its leaders, while placing Cuba on its 'State Sponsors of Terrorism' list. In this updated edition of her classic, Cuba and the United States, Jane Franklin depicts the two countries' relationship from the time both were colonies to the present. We see the early connections between Cuba and the United States through slavery; through the sugar trade; Cuba's multiple wars for national liberation; the annexation of Cuba by the United States; the infamous Platt Amendment that entitled the United States to intervene directly in Cuban affairs; the gangster capitalism promoted by Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista; and the guerrilla war that brought the revolutionaries to power. A new chapter updating the fraught Cuban-U.S. nexus brings us well into the 21st century, with a look at the current status of Assata Shakur, the Cuban Five, and the post-9/11 years leading to the expansion of diplomatic relations. Offering a range of primary and secondary sources, the book is an outstanding scholarly work. Cuba and the U.S. Empire brings new meaning to Simón Bolívar's warning in 1829, that the United States 'appears destined by Providence to plague America with miseries in the name of Freedom.'"--Publisher's description
