In 2006, Fidel Castro yielded power over Cuba to his younger brother Raúl, making him the first new president of the island nation in nearly five decades. Raúl has ushered in many changes and reforms, including allowing open criticism of the government, lifting the ban on personal electronics, and allowing farmers to purchase their own equipment. This timely work weaves together expert analysis with narrative accounts from current Cuban citizens to explore the economic, political, legal, and social changes occurring in Cuba under Raúl Castro’s presidency.

Unter dem Titel »La historia me absolverá«, in Anlehnung an den letzten Satz seines Plädoyers, wurde die ausführliche Verteidigungsrede bekannt, die Fidel Castro am 16. Oktober 1953 hielt, bei der vorletzten Gerichtsverhandlung in Santiago de Cuba gegen die Beschuldigten des Angriffs auf die Moncada-Kaserne in ebendieser Stadt und auf die Kaserne Carlos Manuel des Céspedes in Bayamo, jeweils am 26. Juli desselben Jahres. Sie ist ein programmatisches Manifest, Anklageschrift, rechtliche, moralische, philosophische und politische Verteidigungsschrift des revolutionären Kampfes gegen die Tyrannei. »Die Geschichte wird mich freisprechen« ist damit von selbst zu einem Grundsatzdokument der Kubanischen Revolution und einem der wichtigsten Texte über das politische Denken und die revolutionäre Aktion Kubas und Lateinamerikas geworden.

Kubas bekannteste Kritikerin packt aus – Geschichten einer Generation zwischen Zensur und Zukunft Auf Kuba gilt sie als Staatsfeindin. Für das „Time Magazine” gehört sie zu den hundert einflussreichsten Menschen der Welt: Mit ihrem Blog "Generación Y" erreicht Yoani Sánchez weltweit ein Millionenpublikum. In "Cuba libre" erzählt sie die Wahrheit über das Leben auf Kuba, spricht offen über Zensur und Beschattung und bietet – fern jeder Reiseführerromantik – Einblicke in eine Welt, wie es sie wahrscheinlich nicht mehr lange geben wird ... Wie lebt es sich in einem der letzten sozialistischen Länder wirklich? Ob absurdes Revolutionstheater, lebenslang kaputte Fahrstühle oder der Kampf um die Lebensmittelration – Yoani Sánchez beschreibt den alltäglichen Wahnsinn in einem Land, das seit Jahrzehnten die Revolution probt und in dem Castros Parolen nach wie vor so präsent sind wie anderswo Coca-Cola-Reklame. Doch gleichzeitig ist klar, dass es früher oder später zu einem politischen Wandel auf Kuba kommen wird. Teils witzig, teils nachdenklich, aber nie ideologisch, spiegelt „Cuba libre” das Gefühl einer ganzen Generation in einem Land am Scheideweg.
