It was fine, not overly in depth but that was obvious when I bought it. I was glad to get such a longstanding history of Cuba, it was helpful for me in trying to understand their past.

I liked this book because it was short--it covered a lot of territory in 108 pages. There were parts where it was difficult to follow because it was too brief, but overall I think it did a good job of painting Cuban political history in broad strokes.

Both authors have been faculty at the University of Havana.

Un muy buen resumen de la historia de Cuba, desde sus orígenes prehispánicos hasta sus más actuales retos. Recomendable para informarse, sin grandes pretensiones en el detalle, de la lucha de este gran país y su papel en el concierto de naciones.
This book is a great CliffsNotes for the much more complex history of Cuba. Perfect accompaniment for the long ride back from Cayo Coco to Havana or any place you have a single stretch to consume this.
Good primer for anyone interested in Cuba's history. Great supplement to online research as well.
Pocket-sized and concise. Summarizes Cuban history from first contact to present day.
