Description: Charles Ameringer looks at eight unique years in Cuban history -- 1944 to 1952 -- that generally have been ignored by most commentators, and examines the cultural, economic, political, and social features of the era.

Specialists divide the history of Cuba into three periods: the Plattist Republic (1902-1933); the Batista era (1933-1958); and the Cuban Revolution and Castro era (1959 to the present). Ameringer points out that this division glosses over the years when Cubans had a functioning democracy and enjoyed a rare freedom of expression and an artistic flowering. These years comprised the administrations of Ramon Grau San Martin and Carlos Prio Socarras, both freely elected leaders of the Cuban Revolutionary Party-Autentico. They avowed their dedication to fulfill the goals of the Revolution of 1933 (economic liberation and social justice) but failed to live up to those expectations, and their governments ultimately were marked by corruption and violence.

Without attempting to rehabilitate the Autenticos entirely, Ameringer probes the Cuban consciousness in order to understand the strengths and weaknesses of Cuban democracy during this special period. He concludes that the Autenticos eventually lost the respect of the people, and, despite significant reforms, their administrations led to the return to power of the opportunistic Fulgencio Batista.
