More often than not , you must study the past to understand the present and be able to gauge the future. By far the best, most objective examination of pre- 1959 revolution Cuba is presented by T J English in his book “Havana Nocturne” The book is well footnoted and details well documented. To have a full understanding of where Cuba is today , one needs to read this comprehensive peice of work on exactly where Cuba was in the past.
This is the best book I have read on the Cuban Revolution. I give it 5 stars. Upon completing the book , you fully realize that if there were no Batista , there would be no Castro. I strongly recommend it to people who truly want to have a broad and objective understanding of Cuba ,in the past, present and the future. This is a country that has been changed forever.
A must read!
