Tall 8vo. 1/4 black cloth over boards, gilt lettering to the spine.

Hardcover. ”The subject of her new book is the fateful relationship between the Cuban exiles of Miami and the larger body politic of the United States. her book takes place against the glittering background of Miami, with its familiar paster glamour, behind which sprawls a city of old-fashioned Southern racial tension and a long tradition of fast money – a city on the fringe of Latin America, where Spanish is almost the first language and local politics are rapidly becoming those of the Third World, its culture, history and state of mind inextricably mixed over the past 25 years with Cuba’s, only 90 miles away”.
