I had used snippets of this volume for previous research, but I'm now teaching a class on Cuban culture and find myself referring to it so often that I had to sit down and re-read it, but this time in its entirety instead of in bits and pieces. The book provides an honest look at women's lives, families, expectations, and roles in the Revolution, along with considerable anecdotal evidence as well as hard numbers.

For the record, it's gender-issue "sex," not that kind of sex. Bought it for a class with high expectations and was slightly disappointed.

Well-researched, thorough, and with a perspective that hadn't come up in class: it hadn't occured to me to ask how revolutions affected gender roles and were experienced differently by women than men. Fascinating subject, if not ..Theda Skopkol or anything.
