Samenvatting

In her new book, Exporting Revolution, Margaret Randall explores the Cuban Revolution's impact on the outside world, tracing Cuba's international outreach in health care, disaster relief, education, literature, art, liberation struggles, and sports. Randall combines personal observations and interviews with literary analysis and examinations of political trends in order to understand what compels a small, poor, and underdeveloped country to offer its resources and expertise. Why has the Cuban health care system trained thousands of foreign doctors, offered free services, and responded to health crises around the globe? What drives Cuba's international adult literacy programs? Why has Cuban poetry had an outsized influence in the Spanish-speaking world? This multifaceted internationalism, Randall finds, is not only one of the Revolution's most central features; it helped define Cuban society long before the Revolution.

Recensie(s)

A personal take on Cuban internationalism. . . . The greatest contribution lies in chapters 8, 9, and 10, which contain translated short-story excerpts written by Cuban internationalists. The selections would enrich syllabi for courses on Cuban history or global health. -- Elizabeth Schwall * The Historian * Anyone interested in Cuba, foreign policy, foreign development assistance, and international humanitarianism will find Exporting Revolution of interest. . . . Scholars of all stripes should examine Randall's key argument fully and critically. -- Peter M. Sanchez * The Latin Americanist * Randall studies internationalism through poetry's perspective but in doing so she succeeds and shines a light on novels, short stories, poetry and essays that she describes as the beginning of a genre of internationalist writing worthy of further study in itself. * Morning Star * Margaret Randall gives a thoughtful historical analysis of the politics of the island nation, mostly during the Fidel Castro era. . . . Randall lived in Cuba from 1969 to 1980. It's an analysis based on her wealth of experience. -- David Steinberg * Albuquerque Journal * Exporting Revolution [is] another excellent contribution to our understanding of Cuban policymaking compiled by the poet and activist Margaret Randall. -- Gavin O'Toole * The Latin American Review of Books *
