Note Includes bibliographical references and index
"For many Cubans, Fidel Castro's Revolution represented deliverance from a legacy of inequality and national disappointment. For others-especially those exiled in the United States-Cuba's turn to socialism made the prerevolutionary period look like paradise lost. Michael J. Bustamante unsettles this familiar schism by excavating Cubans' contested memories of the Revolution's roots and results over its first twenty years"-- Provided by publisher
