By william jackman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is partly an apology for 54 years of a failed socialist state and partly a travelogue. The author, a liberal college professor, describes the authentic people he met on his visits to Cuba, architectural relics, the colorful music scene and offers valuable tips on where to find lodging and to avoid street hustlers. Throughout, the blame for crushing poverty and Stalinist control of the citizenry is assigned to the agricultural monoculture, the US embargo and the Cuban exile community in Miami. Tourist info is helpful but take the pro socialist theme with a large dose of skepticism.
