Publisher's Summary

For more than 200 often turbulent years, Americans have imagined and described Cuba and its relationship to the United States by conjuring up a variety of striking images - Cuba as a woman, a neighbor, a ripe fruit, a child learning to ride a bicycle. One of the foremost historians of Cuba, Louis A. Perez Jr. offers a revealing history of these metaphorical and depictive motifs and discovers the powerful motives behind such characterizations of the island.

A recommended read on Cuba

Great narration. Excessive use of quotation. A more original work in writing would have been better. The writer made his point. I recommend the read. Very insightful look into America's view on Cuba. Shame on us.
