About this Item

New- vintage first edition hardcover in very good jacket. Book is crisp, tight, clean, new and unread, with light shelf wear rubbing along some edge areas. Jacket is lightly sunned with some scuffing to front, and light shelf wear, but still looks great. Note that previous owner was a collector who carefully reinforced the dust jacket with what appears to be non-yellowing tape along the interior edges to prevent shelf wear.

About this title

Synopsis:

Louis A. Pérez examines the founding of the national army in Cuba, the rise and fall of Cuban army preeminence during the Machado regime, the bizarre army seizure of power in 1933, which resulted in the collapse of the officer corps, and follows the dominance of the army until the revolution of 1958. He shows that the Cuban political order rested on the stability of the army, which itself grew increasingly estranged from national traditions and eventually became the tool of a clique of political leaders, only to fall to rebel forces during the revolution.

About the Author:

Louis A. Pérez Jr. is J. Carlyle Sitterson Professor of History at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
