Blackface Cuba, 1840-1895

"Blackface performance, treated in U.S. scholarship as if it were an exclusively national phenomenon, has not until now been the subject of an extended study for Cuba, where it was the main vehicle for shaping a sense of hybridity. Lane shows that performance reiterated the contradiction between blacks and whites while trying to overcome it. From acting up to impersonation, Lane links some liberating practices of anticolonialism in the Americas with the binding mechanisms for a new national unity."

– Denne boken om Cuba inneholder for det meste om utviklingen til Cuba,spesielt på det politiske planet. Denne utviklingen har vært svært sentral for befolkningen i Cuba. Kjente politiske karakterer fra Cuba er blant annet Che Guevara og den gjenlevende kameraten hans Fidel Castro. Dette er en helt grei bok om det politiske styret gjennom årene i Cuba. Man forventer kanskje at en slik bok bør være kjedelig, men den gang ei! Denne boken er ikke vanskelig å lese, samtidig som den er interessant. Og har du ikke vært interessert i Cuba og politikk, blir du det etter å ha lest denne boken!!Dette er med andre ord en bok jeg unner alle å ha i bokhyllen!!
