Looking Forward Summary

Looking Forward: Comparative Perspectives on Cuba's Transition by Marifeli Perez-Stable

In Looking Forward, Marifeli Perez-Stable and her colleagues imagine Cuba's future after the poof moment-Jorge I. Dominguez's vivid phrase-when the current regime will no longer exist. Written in an accessible style that will appeal to all interested readers, this volume does not try to predict how and when the Castro regime will end, but instead considers the possible consequences of change. Each chapter-prepared by an expert in the field-takes up a basic issue: politics, the military, the legal system, civil society, gender, race, economic transition strategies, social policy and social welfare, corruption, the diaspora, memory, ideology and culture, and U.S.-Cuba relations. The author of each chapter considers three questions: How have other new democracies handled the basic issue in question? How might Cuba's unique conditions affect this area in transition? What are the likely outcomes and alternatives for a Cuba in transition? Designed with students, policy-makers, and journalists in mind, this lively and accessible volume is an essential resource.

Looking Forward Reviews

Informed by the experiences of socialist transitions in eastern Europe and East Asia, leading experts on Cuba offer stimulating speculations on post-Castro scenarios . . . [and] includes a number of outstanding chapters. Carmelo Mesa-Lago suggests plausible ways that a post-Castro Cuba could achieve greater economic efficiency without sacrificing social equity, and Daniel Erikson offers striking insights on how to escape the corruption curse. And the always eloquent William LeoGrande provocatively suggests that Miami's hard-line Cuba lobby may prove to be a paper tiger when the moment for normalization finally arrives.-Foreign Affairs
This is a collection of articles on post-Castro Cuba that ranges from classical transition studies . . . to issues closer to the microphysics of power. . . . All of these are essential to understanding a regime that made a vast symbolic investment to consolidate its power.-Abstracts of Public Administration, Development, and Environment
