DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Capitalism and Socialism in Cuba documents the history of the attempts by a small island nation to survive and gain respectability within an everchanging international political economy. Professor Ruffin presents a detailed account of the social, political, and economic forces affecting Cuba's prospects for development under both capitalism and socialism. Part one of the study focuses on Cuba's historical association with capitalism and the relationship that Cuba established with the United States. Part two of the study delineates the nature of Cuba-Soviet relations and deals exclusively with the question of socialist dependency. Professor Ruffin's study is a systematic analysis of the internal (race and class formations) and external (capitalism and socialism) factors that have thus far shaped Cuban history.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The Cuban migration to the United States that began as a trickle in 1959, with the seizure of power by Fidel Castro and his guerrilla insurgents, and later was to become a flood tide of people exceeding one million, brought to the United States a unique cultural as well as political configuration. "The Conscience of Worms and the Cowardice of Lions "seeks to explore that special relationship. The phrase "conscience of worms" has a double derivation: from Castro's critique of ideological opponents and exiles as "gusanos "and from the quite opposite Spanish-language tradition of "gusanos de conciencia"--those tiny worms that burrow beneath the surface for truth. The "cowardice of lions" is more straightforward--referring to those North Americans who roared in favor of Castro only to- lapse into a protracted silence when the excesses of the communist regime became evident. This volume was delivered by Irving Louis Horowitz as the Bacardi Lecture Series at the University of Miami, North-South Center in 1992. The lectures cover a gamut of issues ranging from paradox, procrastination, and paralysis of United States foreign policy; thirty-plus years of apologetics by a select group of North American social scientists and journalists; the absorption of honest social research by the Cuban-American community; to a summing up of what has been learned from the Revolution and its impact on social and political theory. Throughout, Horowitz shows that the major theories about the Castro Revolution have had substantial consequences--both in the United States and in Cuba--on how Marxism and communism are assessed in general. The survival of the Castro government, long after the upheavals that eliminated totalitarian regimes in Russia and Eastern Europe, is itself a topic covered in this probing volume, written by a long-standing analyst of Cuban affairs and social science alike.

Editor: Ohio Univ Ctr for International Studies

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Jos� Carlos Mari�tegui, the Peruvian political theorist of the 1920s, was instrumental in developing an indigenous Latin American revolutionary Marxist theory. He rejected a rigid, orthodox interpretation of Marxism and applied his own creative elements, which he believed could move a society to revolutionary action without the society having to depend upon more traditional economic factors. His interpretation of Peruvian history had a profound effect upon subsequent social movements throughout Latin America. This volume reviews the essential elements of Mari�tegui's thought and important influences on his intellectual development. It demonstrates the role he played in defining a Latin american identity, the nature of his intellectual contribution to the development of indigenous revolutionary movements in Latin America, and the inflluence he had on successful revolutionary movements in Cuba and Nicaragua. An understanding of Mari�tegui's thought is fundamental to understanding the nature of revolutionary changes in Latin America.

Release: 1992
Editor: Prometheus Books

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This is the first new anthology of writings by Latin American Marxists to appear in over twenty years. Its purpose is to fill this vacuum and to provide a working tool for both students and activists. While including theoretical, sociological, historical, and economic writings, the majority of the documents center on political struggles throughout the continent. The anthology's method is historical, considering the evolution of Marxist thought in the context of social and political struggles during the different historical periods in Latin America, as well as in connection with developments in the international workers' movement. Of particular interest are hard-to-find documents from the early years of the Communist International; a number of important and previously untranslated texts by Jose Carlos Mariategui, widely considered the most important Marxist thinker of the Americas; documents from the 1932 revolt in El Salvador, led by Farabundo Marti; and selections from the most dynamic elements of the Latin American left, including the Central American revolutionary movements, the Brazilian Workers Party, and liberation theologists.

Editor: Unknown

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Marxism, one of the few philosophies that turned into an effective movement, not so long ago was the official ideology in one form or another of much of humanity. It was promulgated, initially by the Soviet Union, then imposed on much of Central and Eastern Europe, later emerged in the People's Republic of China, and gradually spread to other parts of Asia and even bits of Africa and Latin America. Although declining in its initial popularity, it still remains strong in several countries and is supported by numerous communist and other parties and countless individuals around the world. The Historical Dictionary of Marxism covers the history of Marxism and all its thinkers and schools of thought in a comprehensive manner. This is done, through a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-reference dictionary entries on basic terms and concepts, significant thinkers and doers, and also the parties and countries that followed it.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The first book-length study on Cuban music in the English language. This volume consists of thirteen articles written by nine authors, including four Cuban scholars and five North American ethnomusicologists. The articles by Cuban scholars, translated from largely out-of-print publications, constitute a selection of some of the best Cuban research on their island's music, and present a set of perspectives which complement those of the North American authors. The articles cover such areas as descriptions of the Afro-Haitian derived tumba francesa, the traditional Afro-Cuban rumba, and the rural punto, as cultivated by peasants of Hispanic descent; aspects of the music bureaucracy in contemporary Cuba; the American music industry's dissemination of Cuban-derived salsa in New York City; Afro-Cuban cult music; the history and current status of charanga dance bands; and more.
