Cuba–US Relations - Winnipeg Book Launch
Presenting Cuba-U.S. Relations from Obama to Trump: Change and Continuity.
The talk will be followed by a public signing of August’s book Cuba-U.S. Relations: Obama and Beyond (Fernwood Publishing).
Against the background of the history of Cuba–U.S. interconnectedness and in light of Obama’s initiative and Trump’s election, Arnold August deals with the relationship between the two countries, delving into past and current U.S. aggression against Cuba’s artistic field, ideology and politics. Based on twenty years of fieldwork in and investigation of Cuba, this book provides a unique perspective on the island’s diverse approaches to the cultural war being waged by the U.S. and illustrates the heterogeneous nature of Cuban society.
Arnold August has an M.A. in political science from McGill University, Montreal, where he resides. He is the author of Cuba and Its Neighbours: Democracy in Motion. An accomplished journalist, he contributes articles in English and Spanish to websites in the United States, Canada, Cuba, Latin America and Europe. Since 1997, he has spent extended periods in Cuba pursuing his intensive investigations.
