Abstract:

"As this unerring social commentator follows Miami's drift into a Third World capital, she also locates its position in the secret history of the Cold War, from the Bay of Pigs to the Reagan doctrine and from the Kennedy assassination to the Watergate break-in. Miami is not just a portrait of a city, but a masterly study of immigration and exile, passion and hypocrisy--and of political violence turned as personal as a family feud."--Page 4 of cover.
