Contents Globalisation : understanding the rationale for an alternative -- Western liberal democracy : definitions, ideology and alternatives -- The Cuban revolution : building a participatory democratic process -- The revolution in crisis -- Defending Cuban socialism against global capitalism : internal dynamics and external opportunities
Summary In this fascinating study Lambie argues that Cuba is again becoming a symbol, and practical example, of socialism in action across Latin America and beyond. This book is essential reading for students of politics and Latin American Studies. --Book Jacket
While most writing on Cuba seeks to analyse the island's socialist experiment from the perspective of either its internal dynamics or international relations, this book attempts to understand the revolutionary process as part of a counter-current against neoliberal globalisation. Now that neoliberalism is in crisis, Cuba's promotion of socialist values is finding a renewed relevance
