Cuba–U.S. Relations: Obama and Beyond, by Arnold August.
Includes analysis on Trump.
Arnold August’s bristling collection of interventions vigorously debunks
U.S.-centric misrepresentations of Cuban society and of Obama’s new
‘regime change’ strategy. It also engages critically with Cuban intellectuals
and bloggers fighting in the ‘Cultural War,’ challenging the Revolution’s
cohesion since the 2014 ‘normalization’ process began. With its withering
anti-imperialism and comradely criticism of Cuban realities, this timely
book will open many eyes and raise many hackles.

and editorial board member, International Journal of Cuban Studies
This book could not have been more timely. With Fidel Castro’s death focusing outside attention on Cuba’s future and with Trump’s election throwing U.S.–Cuban “normalization” into question, Arnold August contests the common assumptions and public rhetoric about Cuban politics and about that “normalization.”
— Antoni Kapcia, University of Nottingham
August provides the reader with a bridge across time and nations to understand the changes that have led to the “normalization” of Cuba–U.S. relations and serves as a guide to the Trump future.

Here at last for English-speaking readers is a full overview of U.S. relations with Cuba from Cuban points of view. The book is essential background for understanding whatever President Trump has in store.
