Cuba: A Short History brings together four chapters from Volumes 3, 5, and 7 of The Cambridge History of Latin America to provide for scholars, students and general readers a concise history of this important island nation. Contributors, top scholars in the field, trace the political, economic, and social development of Cuba from the middle of the eighteenth century to the present day. The concluding chapter, updated for this volume, considers the dilemmas and challenges that Castro's Cuba faces in the wake of the Soviet Union's collapse. Each chapter is accompanied by a bibliographical essay that many readers will find useful.

"Cuba: A Short History, edited by Leslie Bethell, is the best brief history of Cuba available. It is recommended for undergraduate classes and for readers with an interest in a nation that has had a tremendous diplomatic and cultural impact on the United States...As a general introduction, this book is commendable." Thomas Zoumaras, History
