Overview

In the 1950's, Cuba was much more than just Havana, with its thriving night life, luxurious hotels, celebrities, and the most recent models of Fords and Chevrolets. There was another, true Havana, shown throughout the pages of this book with profuse documentation of the era of the revolution. Press articles and photographic testimonies are included. Cuba was denounced as a ruthless, dependent and underdeveloped country, plagued by social inequalities, large-scale unemployment, illiteracy, and overwhelming shameful misery. This book provides a look into this Cuba—one we must never forget so that we never return.Existía otra Habana, que sí era Cuba, esa que se muestra en las páginas de este libro, con profusa documentación de esa propia época, encuestas de instituciones privadas, artículos de prensa y un prolífero testimonio fotográfico de los que a diario se lanzaban por los campos y ciudades en busca de la noticia y de la denuncia de un capitalismo despiadado, dependiente y subdesarrollado, plagado de desigualdades sociales, desempleo en gran escala, analfabetismo, miseria apabullante y vergonzante, aquí y allá. Corrupción y represión. En este libro te entregamos, con testimonios irrefutables e impactantes, esa otra Cuba, la que no debemos olvidar para que jamás regrese.
