In the late nineteenth century, in an age of ascendant racism and imperial expansion, there emerged in Cuba a movement that unified black, mulatto, and white men in an attack on Europe's oldest empire, with the goal of creating a nation explicitly defined as antiracist. This book tells the story of the thirty-year unfolding and undoing of that movement.

Besides being a useful and very readable overview of the Cuban revolution(s), Ferrer provides a compelling argument about the centrality of race and nationality for understanding not only the revolution itself but also its legacy. Excellent use of primary docs.
