Cuba Under Siege by Keith Bolender, will be launched in Charlie Byrne's Bookshop on Wednesday the 2nd of October at 6pmJoin us for the launch of Cuba Under Seige by Keith Bolender, on Wednesday the 2nd of October, at 6pm.For more than 50 years America's unrelenting hostility against the Cuban Revolution has resulted in the development of a siege mentality among island leadership and its citizens. This has affected politics, economics, culture, and nearly all aspects of everyday life. In a vibrant new look at Cuban-American relations, Keith Bolender analyzes, through the voices of the powerful and the common, both the positive and negative of revolutionary society constantly under pressure from the world's greatest powers. Using both historic and current examination, including comparisons with America under siege since 9/11, the work covers the roots of besiegement, the impact it has had on the Cuban people, and how and when the besiegement will end.
