This book makes a contribution to the debates on diasporic identities and transnational communication. It offers an analysis of the Cuban-American community and their relationship to Miami-based English and Spanish-language media. Based on extensive ethnographic data, the author demonstrates how different media have been used, produced and influenced by segments of the Cuban-American community in Miami, Florida. After establishing the significance of Miami as a locale to receive a high number of migrants after the Cuban revolution in 1959, what follows is an examination of the interplay of collective Cuban-American identity and the evolution of an exile community on the one hand and media institutions and their output on the other. In doing so, the Miami-based press, radio, network television and online media are examined. The author moreover shows how mediated memories of pre-revolutionary Cuba have been kept alive in Miami and over time became more inclusive through the use of new media technologies.
