Synopsis: An analysis of economic and social policies under the Cuban revolution in its firts two decades, with the most comprehensive collection of data and information available. Arthur Whitaker Award to the best book published in 1981 in any discipline dealing with Latin America. Selected among the best books on Latin America by Choice (1982): "This book is better than anything else now available. No graduate or undergraduate library should overlook it." Chosen among the best books of the year by The Times of the Americas.

"Mesa-Lago's contribution represents the most comprehensive and best documented analysis of the Cuban economy in 1959-1981. Because of the author's long-standing experience in dealing with Cuban publications, the balanced and informed interpretation of statistical data, and the reliable use of citations, it sets a standard work against which past and future research on Cuba are to be measured" (Peter Gey, Professor of Economics, Goethe Universität, Frankfurt, Osteuropa Wirtschaft, 1984).

"Carmelo Mesa-Lago's book is definitely the place to turn for a thoughtful, concise, readable and authoritative appraisal of Cuba's economy under Castro. He has managed to achieve the scholarly objectivity about Cuba that eludes most observers. The picture he paints is empirically grounded, nuanced, and well worth careful study" (Abraham Lowenthal, Professor of Political Science, University of Southern California, 1981).
"... an impressive work which meets the goal of providing a balanced appraisal of Cuba's economic evolution, demonstrating once again the author's superior skills, his critical judgment, and his willingness to be guided by the evidence" (Juan del Aguila, Professor of Political Science, Emory University, Atlanta, Southeastern Latin Americanist,  1984).

 

"The author strains to be fair, even when he is clearly at his most critical... I recommend [it] highly" (Edel Matthews, Queens College, Niewe West-Indische Gids, Netherlands, 1983).

 

"Certainly one of the most documented books on the subject" (Maxime Aubert, Revue Tier Monde, 1983).

 

"Objective and professional in approach... provides a concise but integrate view of the Cuban economy" (Foreign Affairs, 1982).

 

"A solid and objective economic analysis" (Latin America in Books, 1982).
