SUMMARY

Appearing in the aftermath of the stunning events surrounding the Elian Gonzalez case, the nature of Cuban Communism has again become a core issue for the American people. Cuban Communism has widely come to be known as "the Bible of Cuban Studies". It has been updated and upgraded for the fourth decade of Castro's successful seizure of power, the longest running dictatorship in the world. In addition to articles and essays representing recent developments in Cuba, the work boasts an update of three new features that will make it even more important to students, scholars, and researchers in the area.The volume has an entirely new section on future prospects for civil society and democracy for Cuba in a post-Castro environment. It also contains a chronology of events from 1959 through 2000 that will be important as a guide for studying the period. Finally, the work contains a brief but carefully constructed who's who of important players in Cuba and the regime during the Castro-period.Articles new to the tenth edition of Cuban Communism are by Ernesto Betancourt, "Technical Assistance Needs for Institutional Transformation"; Andrew Natsios", Humanitarian Assistance During a Democratic Transition in Cuba"; Juan J. Lopez", Non-Transition in Cuba"; Michael Radu, "United States and Cuba after Castro"; Sergio Diaz-Briquets, "International Lending Institutions in Cuba's Transition Process", and "Future Security Issues between the United States and Cuba" by Brian Latell. This edition sheds new light on why, despite predictions of imminent collapse, the Castro regime has remained in power. It offers insights into the survival potential of dictatorships and illegitimate regimes despitecrisis and ostracism. It is, more than ever, a must volume for those interested in comparative political systems and social structures.Horowitz, Irving Louis is the author of 'Cuban Communism ', published 2000 under ISBN 9780765807656 and ISBN 0765807653.
