On Becoming Cuban
Identity, Nationality, and Culture
by Louis A. Pérez Jr.
About The Book
Cuba has long fascinated, mystified, and frustrated Americans. Now, in this sweeping work, Louis A. PE rez Jr. transforms the way we view Cuba and its relationships with the United States. Drawing from an enormous range of sources, including archival records, oral interviews, and examples from popular culture, PE rez reveals a powerful web of everyday, bilateral connections between Cuba and the United States. He shows how America’s cultural and political forms profoundly influenced Cuba’s identity, nationality, and sense of modernity from the early 1850s, when the island was still a Spanish colony, until the revolution that erupted in 1959. In exploring Cuba’s encounter with the United States, PE rez articulates the cultural context for that revolution, tracing it to the country’s growing dissatisfaction at not having kept pace with America’s own rampant prosperity and modernization.
