Description

The essays, research notes, book reviews, and bibliography in this volume continue the multidisciplinary journal’s tradition as the premier publication in the field. In addition to four articles on Cuban literature—focusing on the poetry of Amando Fernández and Ena Lucía Portela,, the novels of Roberto G. Fernández, and the "dirty realism" of Pedro Juan Gutierrez—there are essays examining the political afterlife of Eduardo Chibás, the spread and prevention of AIDS among Cuban-American women, and the Cuban Constitutions promulgated over the past forty years. A research note based upon recently declassified documents on the U.S.’s covert war against Cuba in the early 1960s completes the collection.
