The work fills a significant gap in historical and political literature, illuminating how Cuba's electoral democracy underwent a tumultuous transformation into a military dictatorship. The author draws on years of research in newly opened archives and on personal interviews to shed light on the men and women of Cuba who participated in mass mobilization and civic activism to establish social movements in their quest for social and racial justice and for more accountable leadership. Driven by a sense of duty toward la patria (the fatherland) and their dedication to heroism and martyrdom, these citizens built a powerful underground revolutionary culture that shaped and witnessed the overthrow of Batista in the late 1950s."@en ;
