Cuba, the United States, and the Post-cold War World The International Dimensions of the Washington-Havana Relationship

Cuba, the United States, and the Post-cold War World The International Dimensions of the Washington-Havana Relationship Synopsis

Examining the international implications of U.S.-Cuba political and economic relations, these essays reveal a stark anomaly. While many of Cuba's relationships with American allies have evolved beyond the cold war paradigm, its relations with the United States have not. With essays covering U.S. foreign policy, U.S.-Cuba relations, international relations, and international economics, this collection highlights the striking tension between America's Cuba policy and the rest of the international community. The contributors conclude that the current economic and travel sanctions on Cuba are not likely to produce the changes the U.S. desires in Cuba's social and political policies and that the current U.S. policy might be damaging relations with its allies, given that most have already decreased santions toward Cuba with promising results. Contributors argue that Washington's approach is anachronistic, irrational, and ultimately ineffective, and their discussion provides a comprehensive framework for judging not only the United States' Cuba policy but also its foreign policy in general. Their analysis makes an important contribution to the debate about multilateralism versus unilateralism in U.S. foreign policy.
