Long Description
Accompanies and supports the Cuba After Castros monograph report with more--detailed analyses of the political, social, demographic, and economic problems confronting Cuba.
Unpaid Annotation
Cuba is nearing the end of the Castro era. When that end arrives, thegovernment that succeeds Fidel Castro, as well as the Cuban peoplethemselves, will need answers to the following questions: How is Castro'smore than four-decade rule likely to affect a post-Castro Cuba? What are thepolitical, social, and economic challenges that Cuba will have to confront?What are the impediments that will need to be surmounted if Cuba is todevelop economically and embark on a democratic transition? The fiveappendices within this report constitute a companion volume to the RANDCorporation report Cuba After Castro: Legacies, Challenges, and Impediments(MG-111-RC, 2004), which integrated and synthesized the main findings ofthese five studies. Although this report is issued as a separate volume, itis designed to accompany and support the initial report with more-detailedanalyses of the political, social, demographic, and economic problems thatconfront Cuba today and that are certain to tax any government that comes topower in the post-Castro era.
Unpaid Annotation
Five essays supporting the monograph above with analyses of the political, social, demographic, and economic problems that confront Cuba today and that are certain to burden any government that comes to power in the post-Castro era.
