Описание: "Terrific background, keen insight and an evenhanded critical distance distinguish Erikson's fine work."--"Kirkus Reviews
"There are few international relationships as intimate, as passionate--and as dysfunctional--as that of the United States and Cuba. In "The Cuba Wars," Cuba expert Daniel Erikson draws on extensive visits and conversations with both Cuban government officials and opposition leaders--plus key players in Washington and Florida--to offer an unmatched portrait of a small country with outsized importance to Americans and American policy. Daniel P. Erikson is senior associate for U.S. policy at the Inter-American Dialogue think tank in Washington, D.C. He has published more than fifty essays and scholarly articles in publications including "The Washington Post," the "Los Angeles Times," and "The Miami Herald."
"A complete, insightful and fair-handed look at American policies toward Cuba."--The Associated Press ""The Cuba Wars" provides a valuable glimpse inside the U.S. decision-making process with regards to one of its oldest and seemingly most intractable international disputes."--"The Miami Herald""" "A sharp and deeply reported account of dynamics informing U.S.-Cuba policy since the Clinton administration."--"The Nation " "Dan Erikson unravels the multiple arguments that swirl about Cuba between Cubans on both sides of the Straits of Florida, the governments in Washington and Havana, and those for whom Cuba is the cause of either glorious revolution or brutal repression. He sheds light on substantive policies, stylistic differences, and deeply-held public values in clear, accessible prose, with fascinating stories that illustrate the larger drama."--Jorge I. Dominguez, Professor of Government, Harvard University "Dan Erikson's comprehensive and insightful book could not have been published at a better time. There is a transition under way in Cuba, as in the U.S., and whether one agrees or disagrees with Erikson's balanced analysis, this volume is an excellent starting point to review and rethink decades of policy failure. Neither nostalgia nor wishful thinking will change the realities in Cuba, and this book explains why. Cuban society is evolving; a new political generation is about to move front and center. Wise policy makers will take Erikson's book as a guide to what to do next."--Riordan Roett, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Western Hemisphere Program, Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University "Erikson achieves what for decades has been so elusive for American observers of the Cuban revolution: he writes with flair and grace, presenting objective, finely nuanced analysis. I like how he weaves in dozens of interviews reflecting a diversity of views. This is a stimulating and valuable read."--Brian Latell, Senior Research Associate, Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies, University of Miami, and author of "After Fidel: Raul Castro and the Future of Cuba's Revolution" "Dan Erikson has made an issue and a set of characters many of us thought permanently frozen dance out from the pages of his wonderfully refreshing look at the recent US-Cuba madness. There are original anecdotes and portraits in this book that I haven't seen anywhere else. Whether writing about Guantanamo, Havana, Miami, or the shenanigans in Washington, Dan's reporting, analysis, and his wry sense of irony make "The Cuba Wars" a lot more fun to read than the serious title implies. A major accomplishment."--Julia E. Sweig, Council on Foreign Relations, author of "Inside the Cuban Revolution" "Cogent summary of decades of Cuban-American animus, plus speculation about future detente . . . Erikson, a senior associate for U.S. policy at Washington think tank Inter-American Dialogue, has traveled frequently to Cuba and is evidently well versed in its history and culture. He skillfully assesses both sides as he chronicles the 'war of nerves' between Americ
