Havana and Moscow

The Washington Factor

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter highlights how Havana's relationship with Moscow was a key factor in explaining the way in which Cuba was able to break traditional international-relations thinking and obtain a disproportionately large amount of power in geopolitics for a small Caribbean island. Bain analyzes the various pressures that have impinged on relations between Havana and Moscow since the late 1950s, with particular attention on the role Washington played in this relationship--one that transcended both the end of the cold war and the appearance of a new world order.
