This recently enlarged edition focuses on the events of this last momentous decade while the Cuban regime and its subjects struggle, bereft of outside support and subsidy. The author has expanded on the recent as well as earlier periods. New entries include all Spanish governors and captains general, transport and communications, and every present-day municipio, along with Cuba's older administrative divisions. Provides a wealth of information from the earliest human settlement to the difficulties of the last decade. Also includes several maps detailing such aspects of Cuba as its provinces, major highways, natural features and railroads.
