Jorge I. Domínguez

University Press of Florida

This chapter explores four scholarly explanations, from the distribution of power's changing dynamics in the international system with the end of the cold war in Europe to the irreconcilability of their conflicting ideologies, for why the U.S. established workable relations with every remaining communist government but Cuba. However, these explanations do not offer a reason as to why the U.S. did not simply invade Cuba as a result of these differences. In this essay, Domínguez aims to suggest that the United States was deterred from such actions both by Cuba's military capabilities and by the “balancing” provided by other international actors.
