The Context for the FAR at Home—Malaise sans fin?

  • Hal Klepak
Part of the Studies of the Americas book series (STAM)


As this is written in 2005, it is clear that Cuban defense is enormously changed since the beginning of the Special Period more than 15 years ago now. In order to get closer to a position in which we can draw conclusions on such a relatively closed institution as the FAR involves us looking at a number of points related to the context actually lived by Cubans. It will become obvious to the reader that these matters are close indeed to the strategic issues we are discussing in this book even if they do not necessarily seem so at first glance.
