    A Revolution in Motion

    By Isaac Saney     January 2003

    This accessible, up-to-date and comprehensive introduction to Cuba today provides both students and general readers with a sense of the changes-and continuities-in Cuba through the 1990s. It starts with the crisis the country faced following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of its support to Cuba. Isaac Saney describes the economic crash, new policies and subsequent recovery during the ‘Special Period.’ He addresses the renewed pressures placed on the country as a result of the deterioration in US-Cuban relations following the election of George W. Bush, September 11 and the war on Iraq.
