Voices of Change in Cuba from the Non-State Sector

Voices of Change in Cuba from the Non-State Sector

More than one million Cubans, representing thirty percent of the country’s labor force, currently comprise the non-state sector. This development represents a crucial structural reform implemented by Raul Castro. Yet, little has been published about the demographic makeup of this group. Based on eighty in-depth interviews recently conducted in Cuba, this book offers fascinating insights into today’s Cuban economy from the non-state sector, while also reflecting on its potential for development and the obstacles it faces.

Cuban Studies 45

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 Jesœs Diaz as an ‘unintentional deviationst.’ History is discussed vis-a-vis the radio politics of young Eddy Chibas, 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.
