Abstract : This study first reviews Cuban-Soviet relations since 1960, emphasizing major turning points. It then examines Cuban military diplomacy in Africa and the Middle East over the same period, and compares the two records. Insights gained from that comparison, and from the record of Cuban behavior, are then used to analyze Cuban participation in the Angolan civil war, and some of the prospects for Cuban policy in post-Angola Africa.

The Algerian-Moroccan border conflict provided the Organization of African Unity (OAU) with the first test of its machinery and procedures for peacekeeping and for the peaceful settlement of disputes. The following examination of that dispute and of its treatment by the Organization of African Unity is a case study of the operation of a newly founded regional organization. The Organization of African Unity was endowed with no supranational powers which might have enabled it to enforce its will o...

THE chain reaction set off in Paris by the Franco-Moroccan Declaration of 2 March 1956 still reverberates in the politics of north-west Africa. On that day, France ended 44 years of its protectorate over Morocco, restored to Mohamed V full sovereignty over I62,I20 square miles of land and some seven million people, and pledged 'to respect, and see to it that others respect, the integrity of Moroccan territory, as guaranteed by international treaties'.1 The next month, Moroccan territory grew by ...

ABSTRACTLatin American social medicine efforts are typically understood as national endeavours, involving health workers, policymakers, academics, social movements, unions, and left-wing political parties, among other domestic actors. But Latin America’s social medicine trajectory has also encompassed considerable between-country solidarity, building on early twentieth century interchanges among a range of players who shared approaches for improving living and working conditions and instituting ...

Cuba's Cold War policy in the Middle East embodies the Third World undercurrents that played an important role in shaping the international order beyond the U.S.–Soviet binary. Castro believed that his revolution would inspire a coalition of developing nations from among the Arab World bound together by past experiences of imperialism. The experiment, however, was far less glorious. Contradiction and complication plagued Cuba's Cold War policies in the Middle East. Castro, inspired by the ideals...

This paper looks at how the principles of internationalism have been integral to the Cuban healthcare system and to Cuba's cooperation and medical support in other countries around the world. The paper details the range and scope of Cuban health internationalism and the principles that underpin the Cuban approach of long-term collaboration, humane care, contextualization, trans-disciplinarity, respect for collective/historical memory and an ethical stance. The paper details the role of Cuban psy...

The standard historiography sees the working class as a passive bystander in the insurrectionary phase of the Cuban revolution, assuming that the real struggle was conducted by a rural guerrilla army. However, an examination of the archival evidence contradicts this view and shows that workers played a much more active role in the defeat of the Batista regime than they are normally given credit for. At the start of the 1950s, Cuba was suffering a crisis in profitability as the world price of sug...

King Hassan II of Morocco (1961–1999) redirected his country's foreign policy from a neutralist stance opted for by his father, Muhammad V (1956–1961), towards a definite pro-Western orientation. To study the evolution of Hassan II's early years of foreign policy and his relations with the USA, this article analyses the role played by the Kennedy administration during the Algerian–Moroccan conflict of 1963 known as the ‘War of the Sands’. It explains the objectives and the limitations of the US ...

Cuba’s first African mission set parameters integrating military and human development, in particular training, education, and health, that became typical of Cuban international interventions over the next 25 years. The paragraphs below draw on published histories to synthesize tangled experiences from Algeria in 1962 to the end of the Angolan civil war in 1988 and Namibian independence two years later. Focusing on Cuban support for Namibians in exile, they track Cuba’s role in Angola and northe...

Author(s): Rodriguez Drissi, Susannah | Advisor(s): Kristal, Efrain | Abstract: This dissertation proposes an interpretive paradigm to explore the Moorish, Arab, Islamic and Algerian presence in Cuban literature and cultural studies, and it offers four case studies in which to do so. The interpretative paradigm involves a dynamic between two coexisting approaches in Cuban cultural history. The first is akin to Edward Said's notion of Orientalism, an exotization of the other that invites a critic...

Educationally, Cuba has much to celebrate. From the early 1960s, with an obligation for all to learn, its unprecedented investment in literacy and schools was extended into an ever-increasing multilevel system, reaching into the remotest corners of the nation. Over time, this has taken Cuba to the top of world rankings in several areas of human development, no matter that its economic statistics were not always deemed sufficiently robust to include it among the indicators.

‘“Social medicine”, a concept notably developed in Latin America by Salvador Allende in the 1930s, links up a broader model and ethos of public health with processes of social transformation. In recent years that influence has spread to Timor Leste, through a very large Cuban health cooperation and training program. This paper considers to what extent an endogenous “social medicine” might be developing in Timor Leste. Such a development would require transition away from the existing model based...
