        Helen Yaffe is a lecturer in economic and social history at the University of teaching focuses on Latin American and Cuban development. Since , she has spent time living and researching in Cuba.

        For almost 60 years Cuba has successfully defended its socialist revolution against a steady onslaught of U.S. aggressive actions, serious enough at times to warrant extraordinary measures.   It seems to me that Cuba not only has every right to defend its culture and the process that is involved in working out its policy, but also that if it does not, it will sink. According to Fidel Castro, culture is the nation’s shield, and is therefore the first thing that must be saved in order to guarantee the progress of the revolutionary.

      Bolivian society is a very mixed one, which has a lot of interesting aspects to offer to a visiting Bolivian people are a mixture of descendants of the Spanish colonizers, indigenous Bolivians,and ‘mestizos’ (a mix of the two) as well as other small minorities of immigrants and descendants of African slaves from the colonial period. Known for its poets, culture, and Afro-Cuban folklore, we will explore the Triunvirato Plantation and the Castillo San Severino where we will hear about the history of slavery in Cuba. The rest of the afternoon we relax and explore the beautiful beaches of Varadero, a popular resort town covering Cuba‘ s narrow Hicacos Peninsula.

Music is an important part of Cuban society, and the traditional musical styles are still popular and influential to this day. Cuban is a vibrant country full of music, poetry, dancing, singing, and chatting.

People still have time for each other and for their guests. Cuba - Cuba - Cultural life: Cuban culture has undergone a major transformation since its society revolution, and the government has come to play a leading role in it.

Since the creation of the Ministry of Culture inthis role has expanded to include a network of its culture book and amateur cultural organizations throughout the country.

Like what they call “The Three. Perspectives on Cuba and its People reflects the same social and political concerns as Vigil--he respects the island's sovereignty and praises its advances in basic human rights such as education and health care, for example, while criticizing civil society's muted voice.

In Fidel Castro and Che Guevara led a rebel movement to overthrow the dictatorship. In its place, they instituted a Communist government, which brought its own set of challenges to both Cuba's political scene and economy.

Inthe Soviet Union collapsed, leaving Cuba without its main trading partner and support system. Cuba can no longer afford to limit its trading partners to those who share its visions of justice and equality.

It has been forced to cooperate economically with capitalist states whose political-economic ideologies are anathema to the socialist ideal.

This is a rewarding addition to my knowledge of Cuba. It is a book I particularly recommend to any US resident who is intending to visit Cuba for the first time as a result of the US Presidents stated intention to lift its ban on Americans visiting the island/5(3).
