With All, and for the Good of All : The Emergence of Popular Nationalism in the Cuban Communities of the United States, 1848-1898 Hardback

Description

Cuban-Americans are beginning to understand their long-standing roots and traditions in the United States that reach back over a century prior to 1959.

This is the first book-length confirmation of those beginnings, and its places the Cuban hero and revolutionary thinker Jose Marti within the political and socioeconomic realities of the Cuban communities in the United States of that era.

By clarifying Marti's relationship with those communities, Gerald E.

Poyo provides a detailed portrait of the exile centers and their role in the growth and consolidation of nineteenth-century Cuban nationalism. Poyo differentiates between the development of nationalist sentiment among liberal elites and popular groups and reveals how these distinct strains influenced the thought and conduct of Marti and the successful Cuban revolution of the 1890s.
