Requirements: .PDF reader, 11.5 Mb
Overview: Cuba’s alliance with the Grenada Revolution of 1979-1983, led by Maurice Bishop, is the centerpiece of this pioneering and provocative analysis of Cuban internationalism. Based on thousands of pages of confidential Cuban and Grenadian government documents and eleven months of field work in Grenada, the work provides the first in-depth look at the lives of Havana’s overseas aid workers. It details the social, economic and political impacts of Cuban civilian and military aid programs upon Grenada. New light is shed on Cuba’s role in the October 1983 collapse of the Bishop regime and subsequent United States invasion of the Spice Isle.
