'The strength of Schwab's work, however, lies in illustrating how the embargo has affected the lives of ordinary Cuban citizens in the areas of public health, food, religion, and political dissent. Schwab combines political analysis and personal insight to show how the embargo has permeated all facets of daily life in Cuba.' - NACLA Report on the Americas
'[S]hed[s] light on the ordinary lives of Cubans and provid[es] interesting insights into Cuba's relations with the international community.' - Booklist
'[E]loquently delineates the human toll of an American policy that-however one feels about Castro-most would call a failure. . . . [H]is book is a smoothly written account of the effects of the U.S. embargo.' - Publishers Weekly
