Revolutionary Cuba

University Press of Florida

Chapter 4 covers several topics, most saliently the Sovietization of Cuba: the process of semi-institutionalization of the revolution and the creation of a Constitution. Cuba's Sovietization was manifested by economic reforms that reversed some of the most radical measures of the earlier phase, by the establishment of five-year economic plans, and by increased dependence on one crop (sugar) for one market (the USSR). Other topics include the relative prosperity of the Cuban economy, Cuba's participation in the war in Angola, and increased persecution of non-conformist writers and artists. The chapter closes with the Mariel boatlift and a close look at the Cuban diaspora.

Keywords:   Constitution of 1976, war in Angola, Mariel boatlift, Cuban American National Foundation, sugar industry, electoral system, persecution of writers and artists
