‘Gathered with meticulous discipline and reflexive contemporary commentary, Colin Clarke offers reflections on Mexican and Caribbean society and social change during the heyday of the Castro post-revolutionary years. His edited journals provide a broad-brush and socially nuanced account of the development challenges of that era, together with intimate insight into the drama of emerging political, class and ethnic struggles unfolding under Castro’s eyes.’
– Peter Ward, University of Texas at Austin

‘This is a fascinating and unusual treatment of this crucial period dealing with the impact of Castro and the Cuban Revolution across the Caribbean region and in Mexico. Clarke does very well in providing a flavour of the period – and of the places he visited and worked on – and the important issues of the day.’
– Gad Heuman, University of Warwick, UK

‘This book by Colin Clarke provides an in-depth view of Mexico and the Caribbean by a perceptive field observer during the period of post-colonial upheaval influenced by Marxism, Black Power and student riots.’
– Janet Momsen, University of California, Davis
