Review

"There is very little in print on the subject of the Cuban American community, and most of what has appeared has been politically charged polemic. This balanced treatment fills a surprisingly large gap."--John Hoyt Williams, "History

Not a lot of literature in this area. Clearly written for the non-Cuban audience. Author remains objective throughout. Perhaps a little too objective. Generally, I would recommend it, especially for exiles like me who may have been away from Miami for much of the period covered by the book.

Format: Paperback
Wonderful Text. Helps to rationalize and boost understanding on why Cubans living in Miami have such foreign behaviors in the eyes of the outsider. The author takes you by the hand, and walks you step by step. Absolutely wonderful and did an excellent job at steering clear of any bias.

12 of 15 people found the following review helpful By bigpix@earthlink.net on September 8, 1999
Format: Paperback
Havana USA is a very thorough account of post-revolutionary Cuban migration to America. One of the interesting aspects of Cuban emigration since Castro has been the perspectives given to us by the media and the government - many of them misleading. Garcia dispels these myths with facts backed up my extensive research and personal interviews. A very interesting read.
