Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Robert Fass reads this audiobook with a straightforward informational approach…[and] provides listeners with a history of the nation that most Americans do not get in school…Fass is terrific with his Spanish pronunciations, and he paces himself so that we can understand every word.” AudioFile
This very accessible primer will fire the imagination of college students as well as provide curious U.S. travelers with well-reasoned answers to their most pressing FAQs. Richard E. Feinberg, University of California San Diego, author of Open for Business
“A productive partnership between Brenner, a veteran Cuba expert, and Eisner, an accomplished journalist, has brought forth an eminently accessible, engaging journey through five centuries of Cuba’s tortured yet hopeful history— a story unified, in the authors’ view, by the island’s heroic struggles for self-determination…Cuba Libre concludes with an empathetic and balanced discussion of the dilemmas facing Cuban society today.” Foreign Affairs
