Rich cultural ties between Cuba and the United States influence Cuban's sense of themselves.With this masterful work, Louis A. Perez Jr. transforms the way we view Cuba and its relationship with the United States. ""On Becoming Cuban"" is a sweeping cultural history of the sustained encounter between the peoples of the two countries and of the ways that this encounter helped shape Cubans' identity, nationality, and sense of modernity from the early 1850s until the revolution of 1959.
