"This fact alone makes Chomsky's volume a welcome addition to the historiography of Cuba, and more broadly, Latin America . . . Chomsky's book is concise (less than 200 pages of text) and highly readable, two characteristics favorable for course adoption." (The Americas, 1 July 2011)
"In the case of the Cuban revolution, this book fulfils that intent and appears as a useful addition to the available teaching material. Its division in chapters that can stand alone, based around the themes of economy and politics, relations with the United States, migration, culture, diversity, the special period and Cuba in the 21st century, would allow teachers to use particular sections as class material in a wide range of courses. Tighter editing for the next edition could make it more useful still." (Reviews in History, 9 June 2011
"An overview of the political and economic events is combined with a look at this social impact through an examination of the lives of ordinary people." (Times Higher Education Supplement, 24 February 2011)
“This book is a useful textbook for undergraduate students and a welcome addition to the historiography on the Cuban Revolution. I would even strongly recommend it to any tourist visiting the island since it is concise, very well written, and easy to digest.” (Hispanic American Historical Review, 1 August 2012)

“This is an outstanding textbook on the Cuban Revolution. Smart and clear, A History of the Cuban Revolution is truly interdisciplinary, covering U.S. intervention, the economy, health care, foreign policy as well as gender, literature, popular music and religion. . . . and the treatment of U.S. foreign policy is a tour de force. This text is the perfect backbone for undergraduate courses on Cuba and the Cuban revolution, as well as Latin American surveys.” Lauren Derby, University of California, Los Angeles
“This book presents an uncommon and refreshing review of Cuba’s history during the last fifty years. It will be very effective in introducing the revolution to undergraduate students and stimulating discussion. Written in clear prose, it combines personal experience with a careful and balanced review of the scholarship on Cuba.” Aldo Lauria-Santiago, Rutgers University
