Riassunto: ? Choice 1987 Outstanding Academic Book
This book examines the early years of the Cuban Republic, launched in 1902 after the war with Spain. Although no longer a colony, the country was still hobbled by continuing dependence on and exploitation from a foreign power. Pérez shows how U.S. armed intervention in Cuba in 1898 and subsequent military occupation revitalized elements of the colonial system that would serve imperialist interests during independence. The concessions of the Platt Amendment in 1903 became the principal instrument for U.S. expansion in Cuba. The U.S. then gained control over resources and markets.
L'autore: Louis A. Pérez Jr. is J. Carlyle Sitterson Professor of History at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
