About this item

Cuban Studies is the preeminent journal for scholarly work on Cuba. Each volume includes articles in English and Spanish and a large book review section.
Cuban Studies 45 features two special dossiers: the first discusses the history and workings of the the Cuban constitution and the need to revisit it along with civil and political rights; the second offers new perspectives on the history of health, medicine, and disease in Cuba, and views race as a factor in both infant mortality and tuberculosis from the early-to-mid twentieth century.
Additional essays discuss culture through poetry, higher education reform, the narratives of Lordes Casal, and filmmaker Jesús Díaz as an ‘unitnentional deviationst.’ History is discussed vis-a-vis the radio politics of young Eddy Chibás, the slave abolitionist rhetoric of the Countess of Merlin, and the creole appropriation of Afro-Cuban dance and music to create sabor during the late nineteenth century.
