About the Author

Jorge I. Dominguez is Antonio Medero Professor of Mexican and Latin American Politics and Economics at Harvard University.


Cuba: Order and Revolution will be the definitive study on twentieth century Cuba... To my mind, publication of the Dominguez book will do for Cuban studies what Merle Fainsod's How Russia Is Ruled did for Soviet studies some two decades ago. In effect, it will become a landmark study.--Edward Gonzalez
