Book Description: "In translating into English this work by Ferm�n Vald�s Dom�nguez, Consuelo E. Stebbins has made available to a larger reading public one of the more important historical narratives of late-19th-century Cuba. [It] serves as a chronicle of one of the traumas of the late colonial period and an important independentista text by which to study the sources of Cuba Libre. Stebbins has enriched the English-language sources on Cuba."--Louis A P�rez, Jr., J. Carlyle Sitterson Professor of History, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill Consuelo E. Stebbins makes available for the first time in English a classic text in Cuban history, documenting a crucial event in the history of Cuba's independence movement. The execution of 8 medical students and imprisonment of 31 of their colleagues for defacing the tomb of loyalist hero Gonzalo Casta��n inflamed anticolonial sentiment and rallied popular support to the first armed Cuban resistance to colonial rule. The incident brought international condemnation of King Amadeo of Spain and marked the beginning of the end for the Spanish government in Cuba. Vald�s Dom�nguez's text is an eyewitness account, chronicling events leading up to the massacre and following its aftermath through the imprisonment of the survivors, the ensuing riots in Havana, and official and unofficial reaction. Beyond its historical value, it is a literary landmark. Dom�nguez captures the passion of the independence movement in his account of efforts to vindicate the memory of the slain students. The Stebbins translation preserves both the historical and the literary qualities of the original text while enriching it with a selection of contemporary reaction from the foreign press and with foreign consulate correspondence that offers different interpretations of events. Her work will provide a valuable resource for scholars of Cuban and Spanish colonial history and for students of testimonial narrative. Consuelo E. Stebbins is assistant professor and director of the Center for Multilingual Multicultural Studies at the University of Central Florida, Orlando. Her recent publications have focused on educational issues for language minority students.

Book Description: Featuring hundreds of vintage photographs, postcards, brochures, and other materials evocative of time and place, Havana Before Castro: When Cuba Was a Tropical Playground documents how the city of Havana evolved from Prohibition haven and rich man's playground to a heady blend of glittering nightclubs, outrageous cabarets, all-night bars, and backstreet brothels. Here, captured in one amazing book, is the drama, passion, intrigue, and opulence of a legendary city during its heyday-before the Castro dictatorship re-imagined the country and Americans were banned from travel to this tropical paradise. An architectural historian by profession, Peter Moruzzi is an acknowledged expert on midcentury modern architecture and design. He is the founder of the Palm Springs Modern Committee, an internationally recognized historic preservation organization, and the writer/director of Desert Holiday, a documentary film chronicling the history of Palm Springs as seen through vintage postcards. He resides in the Silver Lake district of Los Angeles and in Palm Springs.

Book Description: The deaths of Marilyn Monroe, Jack Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy became the subject of many conspiracy theories. Jack Lee's play, written in the form of a musical, presents an imaginative version of those events, which is closely based on reports of the time. The tight web of conflicting purposes and conspiring factions is woven into a terse drama presided over by the fates, in which the unwary dreamers, Marilyn Monroe, Lee Harvey Oswald and the would-be big-shot Jack Ruby are as much victims as the assassinated politicians.
