Abstract:

The dramatic events in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union associated with the breakdown of communism, and economic and political reform, sometimes overshadow the profound changes that have occurred closer to home. Throughout Latin America, nations plagued by conflict and strife in the past are now transitioning to democracy and implementing various reforms with heartening success. Amidst these remarkable changes in the international environment, Cuba stands as an exception clinging precariously to Marxist-Leninism and authoritarianism as international communism disintegrates. With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the resultant diminished support, Cuba and its revolutionary leader for the past 34 years, Fidel Castro, are struggling for survival.
