Pressestimmen

"An ambitious and impressive anthology, a sweeping collection of source materials by and about Cubans both on the island and living in other countries... What The Cuba Reader does extraordinarily well is to reveal the nuances and complexity of the Cuban experience. All shades of politics are here, and they infuse Cuban dance, music, film and religion." Miami Herald
