They trek in to the hills and along the coast, camping out on empty beaches beneath the stars and relishing the ubiquitous Cuban hospitality." "But this is just the start of a fully-fledged quest to understand the unique society created by the Cuban Revolution. For Dervla returns alone to explore the mountains, coastal swamps and decaying cities, investigating the experience of modern Cuba with her particular, candid curiosity. Through her own research and through conversations with Fidelistas and their critics alike, The Island That Dared builds a complex picture of a people struggling to retain their identity in the face of insistent American hostility."--Jacket." ;
