Opening on the eve of the announcement of reconciliation between the U.S. and Cuba, the book then looks back at the cultural, political, economic, and religious influences that led up to this historic moment and beyond. Readers are led by a brilliant renaissance man and writer who has been at the vanguard of the citys struggles for more than twenty years. Portocareros anti-tourist guide to Havana examines the built environment of the most sensual ruin on the planet: why are large parts of the city so neglected, and what changes may we see over the coming years? Examining all things Cubania--racial issues, la revoluci̤n, baseball, Hemingway, communism, synagogues, Santeria, Cimarron culture, and much more--Portocarero overturns every stone in his endeavor to bring us inside the city he loves -- amazon.com.
