Completamente revisada, esta segunda y nueva edición explica la historia reciente de los últimos 55 años de la historia de Cuba.

Uno de los cambios más importantes en la historia reciente de Cuba ha sido la llegada al poder de Raúl Castro, y se ha tenido en cuenta en esta nueva edición, con un análisis profundo y con balances sociales e históricos, además de análisis económicos y políticos, que se extienden al siglo XXI.

Yuxtapone la perspectiva cubana con la estadounidense sobre el impacto histórico de la revolución, revisando mitos o preconcepciones sobre uno de los hechos políticos más importantes del pasado siglo XX.
