"Never before has the totality of the short and long-range domestic and international effects of the United States' Cuba policy been examined as systematically as it is done here. When its worldwide impact . . . is examined this way, its real significance can be truly appreciated. I am certain this book will make a difference."--Max Azicri, Edinboro University
Examining the international implications of U.S.-Cuba political and economic relations, these essays reveal a stark anomaly. While many of Cuba's relationships with American allies have evolved beyond the cold war paradigm, its relations with the United States have not.
With essays covering U.S. foreign policy, U.S.-Cuba relations, international relations, and international economics, this collection highlights the striking tension between America's Cuba policy and the rest of the international community. Contributors argue that Washington's approach is anachronistic, irrational, and ultimately ineffective, and their discussion provides a comprehensive framework for judging not only the United States’ Cuba policy but also its foreign policy in general. Their analysis makes an important contribution to the debate about multilateralism versus unilateralism in U.S. foreign policy.
