Susan Eckstein describes how and explains why Cuban Communism has been misperceived and misunderstood abroad. Concealed behind Marxist-Leninist rhetoric and Castro's autocratic single-party rule has been a government promoting a cradle-to-grave welfare state, tolerating market reforms, foreign investment, Western trade, and hard currency "internationalism." Not only has Castro's Cuba been less ideologically driven by Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy than has heretofore been believed, it also has been less omnipotent.

Susan Eckstein's book is more balanced, integrated, and penetrating than many previous texts and has the potential of being the single best overall interpretation of the Cuban revolution. Eckstein delivers a comprehensive and insightful interpretation of Castro's Cuba."--Andrew Zimbalist, Smith CollegeAbout the Author:
