PLANET/CUBA: ART, CULTURE AND THE FUTURE OF THE ISLAND. Rachel Price. Verso, New Left Books, London, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Penguin Random House LLC, New York. 254 pp. with 45 ills. 24 x 16 cm. LC 2015-20394 ISBN 9781784781217 In English.
Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 168982. Publisher's description: Cuba has changed significantly in recent years, from seemingly minor allowances (such as the introduction of cell phones) to large-scale economic revisions. At the same time, many other changes unrelated to the political leadership of the island have changed everyday life in Cuba, from environmental challenges to new forms of consumption. Planet/Cuba examines how art and literature have responded to a new moment at once more globalized and less exceptional, more concerned with local quotidian worries than international alliances; more threatened by the devastations of planetary capitalism and climate change than by the vagaries of the nation's government.
