A trailblazing perspective. August contrasts the experiences in Cuba and some Latin American countries, where participatory democracy is taking shape, to the pretences of the U.S. model. Compulsory reading. * Claude Morin, Universite de Montreal *
A must-read for anybody seriously interested in Cuba and in the overall question of democracy and its practices. * Claudia Kaiser-Lenoir, Tufts University *
Arnold August cuts through the common propaganda about democracy in the U.S. and the supposed lack of democracy in Cuba. Where August's earlier work on the Cuban political system opened a window to this forbidden island, Cuba and Its Neighbours deepens our understanding of Cuba's participatory processes and shows how they have been shaped by Cuba's revolutionary history. * Cliff DuRand, Morgan State University, Baltimore *
