Cuba is a tropical gem nestled in the Caribbean, an island whose great beauty and rich culture belie a turbulent history. Through violent conquests, slavery, bloody revolts, numerous dictatorships, and messy foreign involvements, its diverse population has fought hard to maintain the country's cultural identity. This book provides an introduction to one of the most intriguing countries in the world, describing in glowing detail a land of passion and music, struggle and beauty. It leads the reader on an insider's tour of the island, from its sweeping sugar and tobacco fields to the historic streets of Havana and other major cities, where music and dancing often go on all night. Discover how this romantic setting has been the backdrop for a complex web of historical events that have brought about the Cuba of today. Finally, witness Cuba's emergence as an independent nation as events unfold in the pages of this volume.
