Descripción

"I tell this story from the very personal perspective of someone who lived in Cuba. This book doesn't pretend to be a scholarly analysis of Cuban politics or economics. Rather, it is my story of eleven years on the island, working, writing, raising four children, and participating in the revolutions dramatic process of social change. I neither exaggerate the positive nor gloss over the negative. i do extrapolate from experience and venture opinions, but they are the opinions of a women, a mother, a feminist, a poet-rather than those of an economist or social scientist. I hope what emerges is a picture of how it felt to live in Cuba from 1969 to 1980: the energy, hope, pride, generosity of spirit, difficulty, and sometimes distress. We believed we were changing the world." This book has 273 pages and is illustrated throughout. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Margaret Randall. N° de ref. de la librería 062216

Book by Randall Margaret

Reseña del editor:

"A moving and intimate contemplation of a key historical moment that has been relegated to the margins of political discussion in the wake of the cold war."-Mark Behr, author of The Smell of Apples. "To know Cuba, neither analyses nor statistics nor official declarations nor diatribes by its adversaries are enough. One needs eyes infused with heart, passionate eyes, with which to look at the Cuban people in their daily life. In this book Margaret Randall looks at Cuba through such eyes."-María López Vigil, author of Cuba: Neither Heaven Nor Hell. "Many ask if those of us who lived the Cuban revolution in flesh and spirit would wage that battle again. Margaret Randall's loving and realistic book reveals why we would. It gives us the highlights and shadows of a process that marked the 20th century like no other."-Mirta Rodríguez Calderón, Cuban revolutionary, journalist, and feminist. Legendary writer and poet Margaret Randall chronicles her decade in Cuba from 1969 to 1980, providing an inside look at education, new law, healthcare, employment, internationalism, culture, and ordinary people's lives. Written with a poet's ear, photographer's eye, and feminist vision, this memoir, neither an apology nor gratuitous attack, adds immensely to the literature on revolutionary Cuba. Margaret Randall is an award-winning feminist poet, photographer, and social activist with more than eighty published books, such as Stones Witness and When I Look into the Mirror and See You: Women, Terror, and Resistance (Rutgers University Press).
