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. In publication since 1970, and under Alejandro de la Fuente’s editorial leadership since 2013, this interdisciplinary journal covers all aspects of Cuban history, politics, culture, diaspora, and more. Issue 52 contains three dossiers: two on urban Habana and one on understandings of the Cuban Revolution in 1960s Latin America.

Note: Volume 42 and earlier of the Cuban Studies series are available as eBooks through major library aggregators such as JSTOR, Project Muse, EBSCO, and ProQuest.
