Read full description of the books:
Cuba’s painful transition from underfunded socialist experiment to catch-up capitalism has made life tougher for many who worked loyally as directed by the state, while a new middle class flashes cash flowing from tourists, and from friends and relatives living abroad.
In only 10 years, the economic changes have been remarkable. They are not what the communist government wanted, but there isn’t the money now to fund an adequate welfare state. The collapse of Cuba’s banker, the Soviet Union; antagonism from the White House until a thaw started in 2014; infrastructure damage from powerful hurricanes; a nasty disease of the economically important citrus trees; discontent fomented by the contrast between poor Cubans and apparently affluent tourists: the past quarter century has deluged Cuba with wave after wave of intractable challenges.
Cuban Postcards: Faded Brilliance of Yesterday’s Dream is a personal interpretation of travels in Cuba in 2006, 2011 and 2015, marking a decade of fundamental change, and is illustrated with more than 80 photographs taken by the author.
