    Cuba PDF/EPUB × à PDF cravenjobs.co.uk cuba mobile, Cuba KindleThis book is very big It's also inadequate I would not recommend this to anyone who wants to gain a general overview of the history of Cuba It's also biased and spends a lot of time dwelling on the things it's biased againstThe author does a good summary of Cuba's early history and goes into quite a bit of detail about the slave trade Packing the chapters out with extra info of events that happened outside of C

    Cuba PDF/EPUB × à PDF cravenjobs.co.uk cuba mobile, Cuba KindleMás bien una visión de cómo España Estados Unidos y la URSS han influido en la historia cubana que la historia cubana propiamente tal De todos modos un buen libro que a pesar del tamaño no aburre en su relato

    Cuba PDF/EPUB × à PDF cravenjobs.co.uk cuba mobile, Cuba KindleThis is a comprehensive History of Cuba from 1762 to 1971 Although it has minor inaccuracies and a few typos Thomas narrative is both entertaining and informative and easy to read despite the 1700 pages It covers the last 100 years of the Spanish colonial period the several wars for independence and the days of the early Republic with nearly the second half of the book covering the periods of the Batista and Castro dictatorships Impressive is Thomas' coverage of the early days of the Cuban Revolution 1959 60 A detailed description of how the naïve and trusting provisional President Urrutia and his cabinet agreed to Castro's proposal for them to rule by decree subtly dismantling rights in the 1940 constitution with the purpose of prosecuting Batistianos and we are also told how Castro deceived his liberal and moderate allies in the struggle against Batista and was able to form an alliance with the Communists starting in early 1959 consolidating his pow

    Cuba PDF/EPUB × à PDF cravenjobs.co.uk cuba mobile, Cuba KindleHugh Thomas's Cuba The Pursuit of Freedom first published in 1971 intermittently updated over the years is a massive look at the island's tumultuous history from the British occupation of Havana in 1762 through the early years of Castro's regime When I say massive I mean the first edition's over 1600 pages It's to Thomas's credit that for all the painstaking depth he provides the book's never boring He charts Cuba's evolution under Spanish rule from a complacent slave colony to an island seething with tension the nationalist movements of the late 19th

    Cuba PDF/EPUB × à PDF cravenjobs.co.uk cuba mobile, Cuba KindleLo compré justo antes de mi viaje a Cuba Quería empaparme de la historia de Cuba tratar de comprender a ese pueblo encapsulado en el tiempo y de la magnánima figura de Castro Si bien es la historia a grandes rasgos quedé perplejo ante ella Existe una Cuba antes de Castro y una Cuba después de Castro En la primera Cuba siempre dependió o se sometió a países extranjeros como España o USA En la segunda Cuba es independiente aunque aún arrastró su característica de dependencia ahora por la URSS En síntesis es un buen libro que me ayudó a comprender la historia de esta revolucionaria isla
