Louis A. Perez Jr. is one of the most influential historians of Cuba. Available for the first time as an Omnibus Ebook edition, this three-volume set brings together three of Perez's most acclaimed works on Cuba and its relations to the United States.
This Omnibus Ebook contains:
The War of 1898 presents both a critique of the conventional historiography and an alternate history of the war that is informed by Cuban sources.
On Becoming Cuban explores the rich cultural ties between Cuba and the United States and reveals their startling influence on the way Cubans see themselves as a people and as a nation.
Cuba in the American Imagination describes how for more than two hundred often turbulent years, Americans have imagined and described Cuba and its relationship to the United States by conjuring up a variety of striking images—Cuba as a woman, a neighbor, a ripe fruit, a child learning to ride a bicycle. Perez Jr. offers a revealing history of these metaphorical and depictive motifs and discovers the powerful motives behind such characterizations of the island.
