Summary
  • "More than a decade after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Castro remains in power, with no sign that the Cuban government or economy is moving toward liberalization. In Democracy Delayed, political scientist Juan J. Lopez offers a searching and detailed analysis of the factors behind Cuba's failure to liberalize."
  • "Lopez begins by comparing the political systems of three Eastern European states - the former German Democratic Republic, Czechoslovakia, and Romania - with that of Cuba, in order to identity the differences that have allowed Castro to maintain his hold over the government and the economy. Lopez also shows the various conditions promoting change, including the development of civil society groups in Cuba, and discusses why some U.S. policies help the possibility of democratization in Cuba while others hinder it."--Jacket
