    schema:reviewBody ""Reflecting on Cuba's unique foreign policy--what it meant, what its legacy is and how Cuba has adjusted to a world dominated by the United States--Gleijeses asserts that it is without equal in modern times. During the cold war, extra-continental military interventions were the preserve of the two superpowers, a few West European countries and Cuba. Moreover, West European military interventions in the 30 years between the rise of Castro and the end of the cold war pale in size and daring compared to those of Cuba. The dispatch of 36,000 Cuban soldiers to Angola between November 1975 and April 1976 to repel a South African invasion encouraged by Washington stunned the world; in early 1978, 12,000 Cuban soldiers went to Ethiopia to help defeat a Somali invasion; by 1988, there were 55,000 Cuban soldiers in Angola. Even the Soviet Union sent far fewer troops beyond its immediate neighbourhood than did Cuba. The cold war framed three decades of Castro's revolutionary zeal, but Castro's vision was always larger than it. For him, the battle against imperialism--his life's raison d'être--is more than the struggle against the United States: it is the war against despair and oppression in the Third World. This war continues."--Jacket." ;
