Summary

  • "Since the early 1960s, few countries have endured more acts of terrorism against civilian targets than Cuba. The US has often been involved in these attacks. This book gives a voice to the victims. Keith Bolender reveals the enormous impact that terrorism has had on Cuba's civilian population. Over 1,000 documented incidents have resulted in more than 3,000 deaths and 2,000 injuries. Bolender includes first-person interviews with surviving victims, and relatives and friends of those killed. The book is a unique resource for anyone interested in Cuba's troubled relationship with the US."--Page [4] of cover.
