Summary In this comprehensive study of Cuban politics, Rhoda Rabkin examines the institutions, policies, and performance of the revolutionary socialist experiment in Cuba. The work thoroughly addresses the major issues debated by scholars concerning the Cuban revolutionary experience. These include: the development "impasse" of pre-revolutionary Cuba, rates of revolutionary socio-economic progress, "militarization" of revolutionary Cuba, succession politics, respect for human rights, and the relevance of the Cuban model to other developing countries. Rabkin analyzes with particular care the tension between popular participation and the often extra-institutional leadership role of Fidel Castro. Rabkin provides her readers with an honest, objective synthesis of contemporary scholarship on the Cuban Revolution.
