  • Caliban and the Yankeesby Harvey R. Neptune

    The University of North Carolina Press 2009; US$ 25.99 US$ 22.09

    In a compelling story of the installation and operation of U.S. bases in the Caribbean colony of Trinidad during World War II, Harvey Neptune examines how the people of this British island contended with the colossal force of American empire-building at a critical time in the island's history. The U.S. military occupation between 1941 and 1947 came... more...

  • Beyond Slaveryby Frederick Cooper; Thomas Cleveland Holt; Rebecca J. Scott

    The University of North Carolina Press 2014; US$ 27.99 US$ 23.79

    In this collaborative work, three leading historians explore one of the most significant areas of inquiry in modern historiography--the transition from slavery to freedom and what this transition meant for former slaves, former slaveowners, and the societies in which they lived. Their contributions take us beyond the familiar portrait of emancipation... more...

  • State and Revolution in Cubaby Robert Whitney

    The University of North Carolina Press 2017; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    Between 1920 and 1940, Cuba underwent a remarkable transition, moving from oligarchic rule to a nominal constitutional democracy. The events of this period are crucial to a full understanding of the nation's political evolution, yet they are often glossed over in accounts that focus more heavily on the revolution of 1959. With this book, Robert Whitney... more...

  • The Origins of the Cuban Revolution Reconsideredby Samuel Farber

    The University of North Carolina Press 2007; US$ 25.99 US$ 22.09

    Analyzing the crucial period of the Cuban Revolution from 1959 to 1961, Samuel Farber challenges dominant scholarly and popular views of the revolution's sources, shape, and historical trajectory. Unlike many observers, who treat Cuba's revolutionary leaders as having merely reacted to U.S. policies or domestic socioeconomic conditions, Farber shows... more...

  • A Nation for Allby Alejandro de la Fuente

    The University of North Carolina Press 2011; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    After thirty years of anticolonial struggle against Spain and four years of military occupation by the United States, Cuba formally became an independent republic in 1902. The nationalist coalition that fought for Cuba's freedom, a movement in which blacks and mulattoes were well represented, had envisioned an egalitarian and inclusive country--a nation... more...

  • Radical Movesby Lara Putnam

    The University of North Carolina Press 2013; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    In the generations after emancipation, hundreds of thousands of African-descended working-class men and women left their homes in the British Caribbean to seek opportunity abroad: in the goldfields of Venezuela and the cane fields of Cuba, the canal construction in Panama, and the bustling city streets of Brooklyn. But in the 1920s and 1930s, racist... more...

  • War and Genocide in Cuba, 1895-1898by John Lawrence Tone

    The University of North Carolina Press 2006; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    From 1895 to 1898, Cuban insurgents fought to free their homeland from Spanish rule. Though often overshadowed by the "Splendid Little War" of the Americans in 1898, according to John Tone, the longer Spanish-Cuban conflict was in fact more remarkable, foreshadowing the wars of decolonization in the twentieth century. Employing newly released evidence--including... more...

  • Insurgent Cubaby Ada Ferrer

    The University of North Carolina Press 2005; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    In the late nineteenth century, in an age of ascendant racism and imperial expansion, there emerged in Cuba a movement that unified black, mulatto, and white men in an attack on Europe's oldest empire, with the goal of creating a nation explicitly defined as antiracist. This book tells the story of the thirty-year unfolding and undoing of that movement.... more...

  • Winds of Changeby Louis A. Pérez Jr.

    The University of North Carolina Press 2002; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    The first book to establish hurricanes as a key factor in the development of modern Cuba, Winds of Change shows how these great storms played a decisive role in shaping the economy, the culture, and the nation during a critical century in the island's history. Always vulnerable to hurricanes, Cuba was ravaged in 1842, 1844, and 1846 by three catastrophic... more...

  • Sugar and Railroadsby Oscar Zanetti; Alejandro Garcia

    The University of North Carolina Press 2017; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    Though Cuba was among the first countries in the world to utilize rail transport, the history of its railroads has been little studied. This English translation of the prize-winning Caminos para el azucar traces the story of railroads in Cuba from their introduction in the nineteenth century through the 1959 Revolution. More broadly, the book... more...
