Four authors discuss the passion behind Cuban politics. Robert Levine and co-author Moises Asis discussed their book Cuban Miami, published by Rutgers University Press. It chronicles the Cuban exile experience in Miami. They are followed by Damian Fernandez reading from his book, Cuba and the Politics of Passion, published by University of Texas Press. Mr. Fernandez outlines a theory behind Cuban political sentiments -- that they are both passionate and informal. Finally, Joaquin Roy talks about his book Cuba, the United States, and the Helms-Burton Doctrine: International Reactions, published by the University Press of Florida. It is about the 1959 Cuban revolution as well as the effect of the U.S. embargo on Cuban goods as outlined in the Helms-Burton law. During the audience question and answer period, all panelists address the effect of the Elian Gonzalez custody case on the Cuban American community, both in Miami and in Cuba. close
