Chapter 1 provides the necessary historical background to migration and return. It offers a summary of postrevolutionary migration waves, concise information on the Operation Pedro Pan, the policies that have eased or hindered travel in Cuba and the United States, and the range of attitudes toward return in the Cuban-American community and elsewhere. Additionally, it explores reports on the initial trips to Cuba undertaken by the Antonio Maceo Brigade and Grupo Areíto in the late 1970s as well as others more individually focused that followed.

Keywords:   migration and return, migration waves, travel in Cuba, Cuban-American community, Antonio Maceo Brigade, Grupo Areíto, Operation Pedro Pan
