About this book

Cuba: Confronting the US Embargo details and analyses the effects of the US embargo on Cuban society and the response of Cuba and its population to overcoming its consequences. Although the embargo disrupts and harms almost all aspects of life concentration focuses on those sectors most affected. The book is framed by the issue of human rights - from both the Cuban and the US perspective - an ideological gulf which underpins the political differences that exist between the two countries, and which raises the question of how extensively the implementation of the embargo violates the human rights of Cuba and its citizens.

Reviews

'The strength of Schwab's work, however, lies in illustrating how the embargo has affected the lives of ordinary Cuban citizens in the areas of public health, food, religion, and political dissent. Schwab combines political analysis and personal insight to show how the embargo has permeated all facets of daily life in Cuba.' - NACLA Report on the Americas

'[S]hed[s] light on the ordinary lives of Cubans and provid[es] interesting insights into Cuba's relations with the international community.' - Booklist

'[E]loquently delineates the human toll of an American policy that-however one feels about Castro-most would call a failure. . . . [H]is book is a smoothly written account of the effects of the U.S. embargo.' - Publishers Weekly

'This is a useful scholarly work, with journalistic overtones, that nicely complements the already rich shelf of political and economic studies on Castro's Cuba.' - Library Journal
