Zusammenfassung
"This book is an exciting and thought provoking set of reflections on Cuba, stimulated by a visit by US higher education chief diversity officers and faculty. Crisp analyses and deeply moving personal reflections make this a must-read and an important addition to personal and university libraries. A first of its kind on the current state of the island of Cuba, its complex relationship with the United States, and what we might expect in the coming years, as US-Cuban relations continue to shift."-Benjamin D. Reese, Jr., Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, Duke University/Duke University Health System
