Bibliographic information


This book fills a gap in historical knowledge about British diplomacy in Cuba in the twentieth century, which until now has only produced a dozen articles, many by Hull himself, and no overall monograph. ... In all, this is a tremendously valuable case study of the compromises and care that must be part of the diplomacy of a great power while it experiences a slow but steady decline.
