520    The first ethnographic study of life in Cuba to emerge in 
       over twenty years, Inside the Revolution offers a rare, 
       close view of how socialist ideology translates into 
       everyday experience in one Cuban municipality. Mona 
       Rosendahl draws on eighteen months of fieldwork, in a 
       municipality she calls by the fictional name Palmera, to 
       present a vivid account of the lives and thoughts of 
       residents, many of whom have lived inside the revolution 
       for more than thirty-five years. Through an analysis of 
       ideology and practice in contemporary Cuba, Rosendahl 
       documents how its citizens support the present political 
       system, and how reciprocal economics between households 
       and ideas about gender both reinforce and challenge that 
       system. Rosendahl also explains how those who oppose state
       socialism resist participation in society through inaction
       or withdrawal.
