"Cuban Studies" has been published annually by the University of Pittsburgh Press since 1985. Founded in 1970, it is the preeminent journal for scholarly work on Cuba. Each volume includes articles in both English and Spanish, a large book review section, and an exhaustive compilation of recent works in the field.Widely praised for its interdisciplinary approach and trenchant analysis of an array of topics, each volume features the best scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. "Cuban Studies 38" includes essays on the politics of liberation, including: the competing strands of liberalism emanating from Havana in the early nineteenth century; Jose Marti's theory of psychocoloniality; and the relationship between sugar planters, insurgents, and the Spanish military during the revolution. This volume also reflects on cultural themes, such as the new aesthetics of the everyday in Cuban cinema, the "recovery" of poet Jose Angel Buesa, and the meaning of Elian Gonzales in the context of life in Miami.Beginning with volume 34 (2003), the publication is available electronically through Project MUSE[registered], an award-winning online database of full-text scholarly journals.
