Daniel P. Erikson Speaks On New Book, The Cuba Wars: Fidel Castro, the United States, and the Next Revolution
Daniel P. Erikson, Senior Associate at the Inter-American Dialogue, Washington, D.C., just returned from the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago and will speak on his new book The Cuba Wars: Fidel Castro, the United States, and the Next Revolution (Bloomsbury Press 2008).
The presentation is open to all faculty and students and will be held in room 8150 of the VC on Monday, May 4, from 11:10 a.m. to 12:25 p.m.
January 1, 2009, marks a half century for the Cuban regime created and shaped by Fidel Castro. Even with the ailing leader's power transferred to his brother Raul, the myth of Fidel is still at the center of the country's identity. "The Cuba Wars" explores the two crucial questions of the coming era: What does the end of Fidel's leadership mean for the future of Cuba? and, What does a changing U.S. policy under the new Obama administration mean for the future of Cuba-U.S. relations?
All interested faculty are invited to join us after class for lunch. We will meet in the lobby of the Black and Hispanic Studies Dept at 12:35.
Please share this note with your faculty friends interested in Cuba and Global Studies. Please rsvp if you think you will be joining us for lunch.
