The book examines how Cuban revolutionary society has been affected economically, culturally and politically by the development of a siege mentality in response to 50 years of hostile American policies. Using extensive first-hand interviews with Cubans ranging from average citizens to the President of the Nacional Assembly, as well as with recognized experts on the subject, the project will approach the topic of Cuba-America relations from a distinctive angle - that United States policy in its totality (not just the economic embargo) has played an instrumental role in creating contingencies for the existence of a national sense of besiegement, with the resulting civil restrictions, social limitations and economic dislocations. The work examines the concept of siege and how it has affected other societies, most notably the United States after 9/11, and compares it to the extreme conditions in Cuba for the past 50 years. The book will additionally focus on the current economic reforms in Cuba and if American policy against the Revolution is changing with it, and the future of the siege. Perspective is predominantly Cuban, a view seldom heard. Anyone with an interest in Cuba-America relations, from an academic or casual perspective, will be interested in this unique treatment.
