  • Nota del editor
    • Abstract: Escribí la nota introductoria del volumen anterior en inglés. Me parece apropiado que escriba esta en español, dado que Cuban Studies publica artículos en los dos idiomas. Este número va a imprenta en un momento verdaderamente histórico: al tiempo de escribir esta nota, delegaciones de alto nivel de los gobiernos de Cuba y de los Estados Unidos se hallan reunidas en la Habana, discutiendo temas de interés común. El hecho de poder poner común, Cuba y Estados Unidos en la misma oración es indicación suficiente de que asistimos al comienzo de otro comienzo en las relaciones entre los dos países. Digo otro porque las relaciones Cuba-Estados Unidos han sido redefinidas y reimaginadas en más de una ocasión. Desde una ... Read More

  • La economía de Cuba ingresa al cuarto quinquenio del siglo XXI:
           Introducción al dossier
    • Abstract: Cuba abre un importante ciclo de cambios de política económica a partir de febrero de 2008, cuando comienza a ejercer Raúl Castro como presidente del Consejo de Estado y del Consejo de Ministros. Esos cambios de política económica van acompañados de modificaciones de estilo de gobernar, cambio de equipo en la cúpula del Estado, del gobierno, y del Partido Comunista de Cuba, y cambios de diversas políticas sociales. Sufre Cuba y el mundo, ya en 2008 y en particular en 2009, una grave crisis económica que impide lograr resultados positivos de los primeros cambios de política económica, pero a su vez esa crisis motiva y subraya la urgencia de cambios adicionales. Una importante respuesta fue la publicación en ... Read More

  • La economía cubana: Evolución y perspectivas
    • Abstract: El presidente cubano Raúl Castro Ruz lleva más de seis años en las riendas del gobierno cubano, y sus resultados pueden catalogarse de positivos, pero esto no significa que el país muestre resultados destacados en sus indicadores económicos y sociales, y mucho menos que hay una demostración del cumplimiento de metas precisas para darle respuestas a lo que el presidente desde el inicio de su mandato, llamó “problemas estructurales”. Sin embargo no es menos cierto que ha basado sus planteamientos en torno a la llamada “actualización del modelo económico”. Debe tenerse en cuenta que esos problemas debían resolverse en el menor plazo posible, para lo cual se había planteado como un horizonte optimo el año 2015, pero a ... Read More

  • Inversión y asignación de recursos: Una discusión del caso
           cubano
    • Abstract: El anémico crecimiento económico que exhibe Cuba desde 2009 no debe ser analizado solo bajo la lupa de aspectos coyunturales. Si se analiza la trayectoria desde 1985, la situación no es mucho mejor. Existen elementos de gran peso que tienen una presencia de larga data en el escenario económico de la nación. Este artículo argumenta que los bajísimos niveles de acumulación constituyen una de las causas fundamentales de este pobre desempeño. A su vez, esto responde no solo a la escasez de fuentes de financiamiento sino también con al mecanismo de asignación de recursos, que genera notables ineficiencias sistémicas.Este trabajo se propone analizar el proceso de acumulación en Cuba y sus determinantes, incluyendo el ...

  • Balance de cuatro años de reformas en el sistema tributario cubano
    • Abstract: Es un hecho ampliamente reconocido que el desarrollo de los sistemas tributarios está condicionado por la forma en la que se reparte la propiedad en una sociedad. En el caso cubano, el predominio de empresas estatales y la administración centralizada de los recursos mediante el sistema nacional de planificación, habían relegado a los tributos a un plano formal y secundario. Por un lado perdían importancia como mecanismo de financiamiento del gasto público, al existir la posibilidad de recaudar también las utilidades después de impuestos y los diferenciales de precios. Por otro no tenían sentido como instrumento regulador del comportamiento de empresas y ciudadanos, al no estar extendidas las relaciones de mercado. ... Read More

  • Hacia una nueva visión de la planificación en Cuba
    • Abstract: La sociedad cubana está enfrascada probablemente en uno de los procesos más complejos y definitorios para su propia existencia de las últimas cinco décadas. Se aproximan a su nivel crítico un grupo de factores múltiples que han constituido durante mucho tiempo el cuerpo mismo del proyecto cubano: la institucionalidad que caracteriza el modelo de socialismo practicado se muestra disfuncional en diversos ámbitos, e incluso incapaz de garantizar algunos de los principios básicos que propugna; concepciones y procederes, más allá de las circunstancias, se erigen visiblemente como tozudos obstáculos para el desarrollo de las fuerzas productivas; las fuertes tensiones macroeconómicas acumuladas por más de dos décadas y la ...

  • Los cambios en la empresa estatal cubana en el contexto de la
           actualización del modelo
    • Abstract: Cuba se encuentra inmersa en la actualización de su modelo económico, el mismo dirige su interés a introducir cambios en el sistema empresarial, ante todo lo referido a los cambios de propiedad, es decir, la inclusión de cooperativas no agropecuarias y el trabajo por cuenta propia, de hecho propiedad privada. Estas nuevas formas de propiedad supuestamente le permiten a las empresas estatales y al sector estatal en general despojarse de las actividades menos productivas y que al mismo tiempo absorban empleo.Sin embargo la proporción fundamental y decisiva del producto interno bruto (PIB) sigue siendo aportada por la empresa estatal, de ahí la importancia de las medidas que se adopten en este sector.El trabajo no ...

    • Abstract: Como resultado del crecimiento extraordinario de los ingresos por exportaciones de servicios profesionales, los recursos generados por el turismo y el nivel significativo de remesas recibidas; desde el año 2009 se registra una mejora en los saldos de la cuenta corriente del Balance de Pagos de Cuba. Sin embargo, un análisis más detallado del sector externo de Cuba revela que todavía el 32,2 por ciento de las ventas externas del país en el 2012 estaban constituidas por productos básicos y materias primas tradicionales, mientras que sólo 16,3 por ciento eran productos químicos, máquinas y equipos y manufacturas diversas. Por otra parte, se verifica en años recientes una menor sustitución de importaciones, el sector ... Read More

  • Reformas en Cuba: ¿Actualización del socialismo o
           reconfiguración social?
    • Abstract: El modelo de actualización del socialismo que se está implementando en Cuba, responde (según palabras de Raúl Castro) a la necesidad de realizar “cambios estructurales y de concepto” para enfrentar graves problemas de la economía; para ello se ha propuesto una nueva estrategia cuyos principales objetivos son: priorizar el crecimiento económico, aumentar la descentralización estatal, ampliar las formas de propiedad no estatal, transformar la producción agropecuaria; eliminar “gratuidades indebidas” y racionalizar subsidios y seguridad social.Según Mesa Lago (2012) la “actualización económica” comprende tanto cambios administrativos, reformas no estructurales y reformas estructurales. Estas últimas son las que ... Read More

  • Historical Reflections on the Post-Soviet Cuban Health-Care System,
           1992–2009
    • Abstract: In the wake of the disintegration of the former eastern bloc (1989) and eventual collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, a group of scholars who had been studying Cuba’s aggressive and innovative public health strategy and its simultaneous strides in health achievement were faced with a new question: will Cuba’s health system survive? Much to the surprise of many in the academic community, the answer a decade later was a resounding yes. Despite the disappearance of Soviet subsidies, major issues with regard to the acquisition of medications, and financial constraints on medical research and medical diplomacy; the Cuban health system not only continued to function but also persisted in making significant progress in ...

  • La Habana de Wallace Stevens
    • Abstract: En 1945 Wallace Stevens le envía a José Rodríguez Feo un ejemplar de Ideas of Order, su segundo poemario, publicado diez años antes. Al agradecerle el regalo, Rodríguez Feo elogia en particular un poema del libro, “Academic Discourse at Havana”, por captar “la esencia de La Habana” (Coyle 45). Varios años después, en otra carta a Stevens, le cuenta que ha estado comentando el nuevo poemario de Stevens, Auroras of Autumn, con Lezama Lima, a quien el título le pareció “muy stevensiano”, y añade que Lezama admira su poesía desde que leyó “Academic Discourse at Havana” en la Revista de avance (Coyle 178). En efecto, el poema de Stevens había aparecido en la revista en noviembre de 1929, probablemente traducido por ... Read More

  • Fitzhugh Lee, U.S. Consul in Havana from 1896 to 1898: An Ally of the
           Cubans?
    • Abstract: The U.S. consul general in Havana from 1896 to 1898, General Fitzhugh Lee, is not a historical figure familiar to many Cubans today. Today few Cuban historians mention him, and most historians of Cuba outside the island do not say much about him either. In a recent analysis of the Cuban War of Independence of 1895, which preceded the war of the United States with Spain in 1898, John Lawrence Tone refers briefly to Lee as “one of the Cubans’ most important allies.”1 Historians of the United States writing about the war with Spain in 1898 mention him quite often.2I have been able to identify three biographies of General Fitzhugh Lee written by North Americans. These biographies do not present him as someone who had a ... Read More

  • Myth, Martyrdom, and the Many Deaths of José Martí
    • Abstract: La fama es un mito útil.The myth of José Martí’s heroic death at Dos Ríos is central to his standing as Cuba’s preeminent patriarch and national icon, so much so that no less a prominent figure than Abel Prieto—Cuba’s former minister of culture—has wondered what would be left of his myth of martyrdom if it were ever proven less than glorious.2 Yet one would be hard pressed to find a historically significant event in Martí’s life about which less is concretely known, or that has been subjected to more speculation and outright invention. As Rolando Rodríguez succinctly puts it, “Any effort to reconcile all the narratives would be in vain” (“Vano sería pretender conciliar todas las narraciones”), for beyond the fact ... Read More

  • Remembering Pedro Pan: Childhood and Collective Memory Making in Havana
           and Miami, 1960–2000
    • Abstract: Between the fall of 1960 and October 1962, the parents of more than fourteen thousand Cuban children made the difficult decision to send their children alone to the United States, where they were cared for by friends, relatives, and foster parents, as well as in camps and orphanages. The reasons parents did this were varied: many feared for the spiritual well-being of their Catholic children after an increasingly radicalized Cuban Revolution began to repress religious expression, closing Catholic schools and expelling priests and religious orders from the island. Others feared the revolutionary state’s growing interventions in family life and grew panicked after a series of rumors began to circulate that Castro ... Read More

  • “El trabajo os hará hombres”: Masculinización nacional, trabajo
           forzado y control social en Cuba durante los años sesenta
    • Abstract: En un pequeño ensayo publicado en 1969 bajo el título de “Revolución y sexo”, el historiador británico Eric Hobsbawm se burlaba de aquellos que conectaban a los movimientos revolucionarios con la “permisividad en el comportamiento sexual público u otras formas de comportamiento personal”.1 Algo similar pensaba Susan Sontag. Para la intelectual estadounidense, el puritanismo estaba enraizado en la “naturaleza de la izquierda”,2 y formaba parte de uno de los vacíos que tenían que tomarse en cuenta para su propia evolución.Hobsbawm veía con cierto pesar, una “afinidad persistente” entre revolución y puritanismo. “No conozco ningún movimiento o régimen revolucionario, sólido y organizado”, señalaba, “que no haya ...

Este es el caso del libro José y Consuelo: Amor, guerra y exilio en mi memoria, que nos ofrece la historia de una mujer que recuerda la guerra que vivió durante su niñez. Aurea Matilde Fernández Muñiz, profesora de Mérito de la Universidad de la Habana, nos relata a modo de testimonio su vida y la de sus padres entre las décadas del 1920 y 1940. El relato trata acerca de cómo una persona recuerda la relación entre sus padres, la supervivencia en un medio hostil como la Guerra Civil Española, sus efectos en ... Read More

    • Abstract: Written by distinguished academics from Cuba and from outside the country, and informed by valuable insights and research expertise, No More Free Lunch is an impressive collection of scholarly chapters on the far-reaching economic transformations (officially labeled an “update” of the socialist model) that are taking place in Cuba under the leadership of Raúl Castro. The volume offers fresh perspectives on a number of key subjects related to the reform process under way on the island, in particular the unprecedented changes in agriculture, the opening to small private enterprises and the authorization of nonagri-cultural cooperatives, the promotion of foreign direct investment, the abolishment of food rationing and ...

  • Performing Afro-Cuba: Image, Voice, Spectacle in the Making of Race and
           History by Kristina Wirtz (review)
    • Abstract: Kristina Wirtz offers a provocative and polemical look into the meanings of blackness in contemporary Cuba in Performing Afro-Cuba: Image, Voice, Spectacle in the Making of Race and History (2014). Combining recent theories in cultural linguistics with ethnographic fieldwork in Santiago de Cuba, Wirtz argues that Afro-Cuban invocations of African slave speech, known as Bozal, in folklore and ritual performances are a part of a legacy of “discursive blackface” (274). Afro-Cuban performers and the scholars who study them, she concludes, reinforce negative stereotypes about blackness, even as they try to show what they imagine to be authentic representations of Cuba’s African past. This claim, and indeed the entire ... Read More

  • Sobre el socialismo en Cuba by Mao Xianglin (review)
    • Abstract: Professor Mao Xianglin is a Chinese scholar who for three decades has done research and published two previous books on Cuba. He is adviser to the Center for the Study of Cuba, Institute of Latin American Studies, and researcher in the Center for the Study of World Socialism, both at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), and a foreign correspondent for the U.S. Handbook of Latin American Studies. In 1982 we met in Beijing—he was one of the translators to Chinese of my book Cuba in the 1970s—but his help was not acknowledged (as then was considered vanity). Things have changed for good, and now both the names and biographies of the translators to Spanish of Mao’s book are included.The preface to the book is ... Read More

Guided by the spirit of that monumental enterprise, Historia mínima de las Antillas hispanas y británicas (A Brief History of the Hispanic and British West Indies), is an unprecedented and very successful attempt to establish a comparative analysis of the economies and societies that emerged from the shadows of the two European colonial enterprises that exercised the greatest degree of influence in shaping the early modern and contemporary history of the Caribbean.The work ...

  • De los dominios del rey al imperio de la propiedad privada: Estructura y
           tenencia de la tierra en Cuba (siglos XVI–XIX) by Imilcy Balboa Navarro
           (review)
    • Abstract: With the expansion of commercial agriculture, between the late eighteenth century and the first decades of the nineteenth century, Cuba maintained a model based on an agro-industrial export economy that acted to consolidate slave planters in the social strata. To consolidate the sugar plantation economy, planters needed slaves but also land. Slavery has been a recurring field of study in the Spanish, Cuban, and particularly U.S. historiography, but issues related to the usage and possession of land have remained a minor topic.Pioneering research on land begin with Francisco Pérez de la Riva and his Origen y régimen de la propiedad territorial en Cuba (1946), but the only work, so far, entirely dedicated to the ...

    • Abstract: Este libro de José Antonio Piqueras, catedrático de la Universidad Jaume I, en España, y destacado especialista en la historia de España, de Cuba y de las Antillas, presenta una síntesis histórica de la esclavitud en el universo español durante el último milenio, abordando de forma unificada el espacio europeo y el americano. Los objetivos del libro son a la vez de carácter historiográfico y político. El autor pretende, por una parte, ofrecer una alternativa a los abordajes que fragmentan el examen de la esclavitud negra en la América española en términos espaciales, temporales, temáticos y metodológicos. Por otra parte, procura demostrar la profunda imbricación de la historia de España con la esclavitud africana ... Read More

    • Abstract: “This is the story of a failure.” So Che Guevara begins his Diaries of the Revolutionary War in the Congo.1 Until mid-December, diplomatic historians LeoGrande and Kornbluh might have easily embossed their own book’s cover with this epigraph, for reading Back Channel to Cuba—an absorbing, intimate account of U.S.-Cuban relations since 1959—served in most ways to retrace a prolonged road to nowhere.Now, following President Obama and Raúl Castro’s historic decision to restore diplomatic relations, LeoGrande and Kornbluh will be heralded for wielding the powers of prophecy. The point of their prodigious study, after all, is to highlight an alternative, underappreciated history of productive dialogue mitigating the ups ... Read More

           Mercedes García Rodríguez (review)
    • Abstract: Desde el punto de vista histórico, el entorno social y político de la revolución de septiembre en España en 1868, al cruzarse históricamente con la primera guerra de Independencia de Cuba, generó disímiles soluciones al problema colonial, en tanto desde la isla nacían otras propuestas surgida al calor de la contienda o a partir de los grupos mediadores del exilio. De ese contexto de revoluciones paralelas, esta obra de la autoría de Mercedes García presenta juicios críticos, ofrece originales interpretaciones y formula otras interrogantes que podrían regir futuros trabajos de indagación.A diferencia de otros libros de la autora que se dedican fundamente a temáticas económicas del período colonial, en este caso se ...

  • State of Ambiguity: Civic Life and Culture in Cuba’s First Republic ed.
           by Steven Palmer, José Antonio Piqueras, and Amparo Sánchez Cobos
           (review)
    • Abstract: Cuba’s first republic has been largely understudied, typically understood in relation to the revolutions that preceded and followed it as the betrayal of the promise of the independence struggle or a period of laying the groundwork to the “true” revolution of 1959. With essays on diverse topics from the “social life” of the USS Maine to provincial Rotary clubs, this edited volume makes significant strides toward redressing the weaknesses of the historiography. The contributions are united in their commitment to taking the early republican era seriously, as a significant and authentic period in Cuban history. In this vein, the authors seek to revisit the republican era “on its own terms” (19), without the distorting ... Read More

    • Abstract: Douglas Pérez Castro, Vedado 14 (from the Vedado series), 2009, watercolor on cardboard, 27.5″ × 19.6″.Born in 1972 in Santo Domingo, in central Cuba, Douglas Pérez graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte in 1996 and quickly established himself as one of the leading figures in a new generation of artists who came of age during the so-called Special Period. This was not only a time of economic crisis but also a period in which Cubans were forced to contend with the uncertainties of a future that to many looked like a renewed past of inequality, global capitalism, and consumerism. As critic Abelardo Mena has remarked, “For Cubans, ‘the end of the History’ did not come according to Fukuyama’s neoconservative ... Read More
