Synopsis: Havana in the 1550s was a small coastal village with a very limited population that was vulnerable to attack. By 1610, however, under Spanish rule it had become one of the best-fortified port cities in the world and an Atlantic center of shipping, commerce, and shipbuilding. Using all available local Cuban sources, Alejandro de la Fuente provides the first examination of the transformation of Havana into a vibrant Atlantic port city and the fastest-growing urban center in the Americas in the late sixteenth century. He shows how local ambitions took advantage of the imperial design and situates Havana within the slavery and economic systems of the colonial Atlantic.

Book Description: "Interest in modern Cuba has deflected scholarly attention away from the early history of the island. This excellent book reopens the history of early Cuba. It is a wonderful and singular re-creation of the history of Havana and of Cuban society based on a meticulous analysis of the earliest extant records. While there is much new here on slavery and commerce, as one would expect, there is also considerable new information on landholding, social organization, mining, and a host of other themes. De la Fuente's book will change our understanding of how the Hispanic Caribbean and the early Atlantic world developed. It establishes de la Fuente's reputation as a historian of the colonial world and one of the few who writes with equal authority on both colonial and modern Cuba."--Stuart B. Schwartz, Yale University

By 1610, however, under Spanish rule it had become one of the best-fortified port cities in the world and an Atlantic center of shipping, commerce, and shipbuilding.

Analyzing how slaves, soldiers, merchants, householders, and transient sailors and workers participated socially, economically, and institutionally in the city, he shows how local ambitions took advantage of the imperial design and how, in the process, Havana was turned into a Caribbean trading center with a distinctly Mediterranean flavor. By situating Havana within the slavery and economic systems of the colonial Atlantic, de la Fuente also contributes to the growing focus on port cities as contexts for understanding the early development of global networks for economic and cultural exchange.
