There has been much speculation about Castro and Cuba's future and the state of U.S.-Cuban relations in the post Cold War environment. This study analyzes the forces which brought Castro to power and sustained his control.

Industry Reviews

Jordon has done a great service by providing a compelling interpretation of Cuba's development under Castro, putting readers in command of enough history to think realistically about what comes next. The book is an excellent teaching text as well as important reading for the policy community.--William E. Odom, Lieutenant General, USA, Retired, and former Director of the National Security Agency
