Unpaid Annotation
As Cuba nears the end of the Castro era, several key questions emerge. How will the legacy of Fidel Castro's four-decade rule affect a post-Castro Cuba? What political, social, and economic challenges will Cuba need to confront? The authors examine the sociopolitical legacy and economic challenges that the successor government will face-including the role of Cuba's youth, the growing racial divide, the aging population, and the weak economy and industrial sector. They review the policy implications for the United States and suggest alternatives that may help foster a stable, prosperous, democratic Cuba.
