David Alan Harvey's superb, richly evocative photographs celebrate the place itself and its extraordinary inhabitants: their vitality and humor, their ingenuity and courage, and above all their indefatigable spirit. Complementing Harvey's compelling images, Elizabeth Newhouse's insightful text presents an overview of Cuban history and, drawing on conversations with men and women from many walks of life, describes what it is like to live in Cuba now and looks at what might be expected for the future.
Shunned by the United States and impoverished since the Soviet Union cut it loose in 1991, Cuba is in the throes of a painful transition as it struggles to uphold a 40-year-old revolution that began with high hopes but seems now on the verge of failure. To survive their economic plight, the Cuban people must call on all the creativity and resourcefulness for which they are famous, especially in their never ending scramble for U.S. dollars. But in spite of their economic woes, they remain as welcoming and as winning as ever. This unforgettable portrait captures the uniquely Cuban spirit and the lovely, lush Caribbean landscape, which have seduced and delighted visitors for centuries.
