'A significant contribution to debates over the future of Cuban socialism. Highly Recommended' -- CHOICE
'A refreshing study on one of the most significant attempts of our age to chart an alternative course of development' -- Professor William I. Robinson, University of California, author of Latin America and Global Capitalism (2008)
'The Cuban revolution continues to divide and confuse in Latin America as elsewhere, not least because it is set against absolute measures of what a 'true' socialist country should look like. George Lambie instead assesses Cuba at a key point in its history from the point of view of its own standards and objectives. A must read' -- Professor Ronaldo Munck, City University of Dublin and author of Contemporary Latin America (2008)
'How the Cuban revolution survived the fall of Communism is a question that continues to challenge social scientists across the globe. Lambie goes beyond the specifics of the island and its internal situation, and posits the question in the context of the wider world. His analysis is unique and essential not just for students of Cuba, but anyone wishing to understand the global order and the roots of the current crisis' -- Dr Stephen Wilkinson, Director Centre for Caribbean and Latin American Research and Consultancy, London Metropolitan University
