The Cuban Revolution: How should we now understand it?’

As the February 2013 National Assembly elections in Cuba confirm the re-election of Raúl Castro for what he has already indicated will (through legislation to be introduced soon) be his second but final term of office - meaning that 2018 will undoubtedly see a Cuba without either Fidel or Raúl in the saddle - , the time may be right for us to seek to understand both what is happening in Cuba (and perhaps guess at what might happen?) and what has happened there in the last 54 years. In other words, is the Cuba which Raúl now seems to be steering through a cautious but determined programme of reform very different from that which emerged in January 1959 or is it still the same process, and will the Cuba of the future be recognisable for those of us who have known ‘the Cuban revolution’ of the last five decades?
