Cuban and Cuban-American Women: An Annotated Bibliography covers primary and secondary sources found in Cuba and the United States on Cuban and Cuban-American women from the period 1868 to the present. The editors have amassed primary, archival materials located in Cuba and the United States, annotated the holdings and described their locations. Secondary sources are also included and annotated. While most of the emphasis is placed on the twentieth century, significant attention is paid to women in the Wars of Independence. The book is divided into two parts. Part I, comprising Chapters 1 through 3, contains all archival and secondary sources about women in Cuba. Covering the period 1868-1997, this section is divided into the nineteenth century and Independence (1868-1898), the early Republic (1898-1958), Guerrillas and Popular Underground Resistance against Fulgencio Batista (1953-1958), and the Cuban Revolution (1959-1997). Topics in this section include law, history, feminism, health, education, social welfare, archival resources, revolutionary government, the military, political organizations, cultural events, literature, and art. Part II contains all archival and secondary sources about Cuban women in the United States. It also covers the period from 1868-1997, but the body of literature is on the post-1959 era. Topics in this section include the exile experience, family history, autobiography, labor studies, health, education, political organization, racial issues, cultural expressions, literature, and art. Cuban and Cuban-American Women contains both an Author Index and a Subject Index keyed to the entry numbers contained in the body of the book. One of the few collections on Latin American women and the only one on Cuban and Cuban-American women, this book is an essential resource for researchers.
