New Book Announcement

See­ing that count­less booklovers in dif­fer­ent coun­tries, at launches or by email, ask me ques­tions about Cuba, I felt it worth­while to write a non-fiction book about my coun­try of birth recount­ing the 20th century’s most impor­tant polit­i­cal, eco­nomic and social events, and the chal­lenges that I believe Cuba will have to deal with in the future.

I strove to be as unbi­ased as pos­si­ble, but a sig­nif­i­cant part of the text deals with recur­rent vio­la­tions of vital human and civic rights, eco­nomic and finan­cial absur­di­ties, and social dis­in­te­gra­tion both before and after the revolution.

The title of the book is Cuba: rev­o­lu­tion, invo­lu­tion, evo­lu­tion. You can read the Intro­duc­tion for free. You can also buy it imme­di­ately. This is one of the great advan­tages of elec­tronic publishing.

If you don’t own an ereader, you can still read it on a desk­top appli­ca­tion (for PC or Mac, but down­load­ing this free soft­ware from Adobe. It can also be read on a smart­phone (Black­berry, iPhone, Android) and on a tablet (Play­book, Galaxy, iPad). It can’t be printed, though.

In Canada and the US it will set you back $4.99. In the U.K., £3.99. Where euro is the offi­cial cur­rency the price is €3.99. In other coun­tries
the price varies accord­ing to rates of exchange, but in all nations it is inex­pen­sive, another great ben­e­fit of elec­tronic publishing.

Should you know that some of your rel­a­tives, friends or acquain­tances are inter­ested in the topic, I would be grate­ful if you for­ward this to them.

Best wishes,

José Latour
