This is the third in a series of statistical and empirical reports, compiled from quarterly situation reports, which provide basic data on the structure and functioning of life in Cuba. Cuba Annual Report: 1987 comprehensively examines domestic and international events that affected Cuba that year. The volume offers in depth reviews of Cuban foreign policy, the national economy, military allocations and manpower movements, political control, cultural developments, and ideological shifts. The narrative portions indicate which changes in these areas most concern the Cuban government. Cuba Annual Report: 1987 offers a greatly expanded coverage over past years. The volume provides Latin Americanists with a documentary summary of 1987 as well as a chronology of the year's events. As a unique feature in a reference work, the report analyzes these events, offering insight into them and their significance for the immediate future. Whatever opinions one may have on the current Castro government, this volume is now established as the one indispensable handbook for policy-makers and professionals of all persuasions. The information in the volume is drawn from a wide variety of publications -perhaps the most extensive collection in the world - and broadcasts that are largely unavailable to the scholarly and policy-making communities. Professor Jorge I. Dominguez of Harvard University has termed these Reports "first rate and free of manifest bias or slant." Prepared by the senior research staff of the Radio Marti office in the United States Information Agency, this volume is the richest single source of data on Cuba available in English or any other language.
