Description: Guantaacute;namo has become a symbol of what has gone wrong in the War on Terror. Yet Guantaacute;namo is more than a U.S. naval base and prison in Cuba, it is a town, and our military occupation there has required more than soldiers and sailors--it has required workers. This revealing history of the women and men who worked on the U.S. naval base in Guantaacute;namo Bay tells the story of U.S.-Cuban relations from a new perspective, and at the same time, shows how neocolonialism, empire, and revolution transformed the lives of everyday people. Drawing from rich oral histories and little-explored Cuban archives, Jana K. Lipman explores how the Cold War and the Cuban Revolution made the naval base a place devoid of law and accountability. The result is a narrative filled with danger, intrigue, and exploitation throughout the twentieth century. Opening a new window onto the history of U.S. imperialism in the Caribbean and labor history in the region, her book tells how events in Guantaacute;namo and the base created an ominous precedent likely to inform the functioning of U.S. military bases around the world.
