Críticas:

""To Die in Cuba is an engaging and highly original work on a fascinating and difficult topic. I can think of no other history of Cuba that reaches so deeply into this very personal and intimate realm, while at the same time keeping an eye attuned to broader national histories. (Ada Ferrer, New York University)" ""To Die in Cuba" is an engaging and highly original work on a fascinating and difficult topic. I can think of no other history of Cuba that reaches so deeply into this very personal and intimate realm, while at the same time keeping an eye attuned to broader national histories. (Ada Ferrer, New York University)" "This elegantly written and superbly researched study cogently and comprehensively explores the complex attitudes toward death in Cuban society, culture, and national identity. Its attractive interdisciplinary approach perfectly illustrates the consummate skill of an historian in creatively exploring diverse sources. (Franklin W. Knight, Johns Hopkins University)" "Beautifully-written, well-organized, and thoroughly researched. . . . Undoubtedly an important work for anyone interested in Cuban society and culture.""Florida Historical Quarterly" "[A] well-argued and fascinating book that speaks to historians and suicide experts. . . . A provocative study that makes an important contribution to the history of suicide.""Bulletin of the History of Medicine" "Provides the reader with a valuable insight into the mindset of Cubans and helps to explain a previously unexplored aspect of Cuban history. . . . A surprisingly enjoyable read and should be read by those interested in Latin America, regardless of their academic discipline.""Journal of Third World Studies" "Recommended to professionals and general readers interested in Cuba."--"Colonial Latin American Historical Review" "Provocative and culturally penetrating. . . . [Filled] with clarity of purpose and lucid prose. . . . The product of prodigious research and insightful analysis. . . . It should be mandatory reading for scholars and students of Cuban history, Caribbean history, Latin American cultural history, and, more broadly, historians interested in national identity." -- "New West Indian Guide" "This important book both illuminates the place of suicide in Cuban society and offers an innovative reexamination of Cuban nationalism. . . . [An] extraordinarily valuable contribution to our understanding of Cuban culture and politics." -- "National Period" "[A] thought-provoking, informative, and elegant study. It is--controversy and all--a brilliant cultural history of suicide in the Cuban national imaginary." -- "American Historical Review"

Anbieterinformationen

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
