Perez, Louis A., Jr.
The Times Literary Supplementcalls Louis A. Perez Jr. "the foremost historian of Cuba writing in English." In this new edition of his acclaimed 1990 volume, he brings his expertise to bear on the history and direction of relations between Cuba and the United States. Of all the peoples in Latin America, the author argues, none have been more familiar to the United States than Cubans--who in turn have come to know their northern neighbors equally well. Focusing on what President McKinley called "the ties of singular intimacy" linking the destinies of the two societies, Perez examines the points at which they have made contact--politically, culturally, economically--and explores the dilemmas that proximity to the United States has posed to Cubans in their quest for national identity. This edition has been updated to cover such developments of recent years as the renewed debate over American trade sanctions against Cuba, the Elian Gonzalez controversy, and increased cultural exchanges between the two countries. Also included are a new preface and an updated bibliographical essay.Perez, Louis A., Jr. is the author of 'Cuba and the United States Ties of Singular Intimacy', published 2003 under ISBN 9780820324838 and ISBN 0820324833.
