La Mujer Cubana: Historia E Infrahistoria = The Cuban Woman

Ediciones Universal, Manufactured by Cdiciones Universal $13 (106p) ISBN 978-0-89729-924-4
The result of a series of conferences that took place in 1996 at the University of Miami, this collection of essays examines the experience of Cuban women in education, the feminist movement, revolution, and exile. The contributors write from exile and present historical and contemporary views of those women whose voices have been relegated to the shadows. For example, Ena Curnow depicts the 19th-century colonial Cubana's awakening and the violence endured by women of color; K. Lynn Stoner's ""The Woman in the Republic"" traverses the early and mid-20th century to the beginning of feminism's public moments; and Raquel La Villa addresses the reasons why women confronted dictatorship. These pieces offer brief sketches and call for a deeper analysis of the issues raised. Recommended for academic libraries. Marta Lucia, New York City
