About the Author

Reviews

"The many scholarly, substantial, and authoritative works by research professor Perez in the fields of Cuban history, politics and government, and bibliography have, over the past decade and more, received their just recognition. The present guide, a valuable tool for the historical researcher in locating and identifying Cuban archive and manuscript materials in the US, is yet another excellent contribution. Conception of this bibliography was based on the assumption of the existence in the US of extensive, unknown, and unutilized collections of such material with the potential to supplement, but not substitute for, the archival documentation to be found in Cuba. However, as the compiler implies, with access to sources within Cuba often precluded by restrictions imposed by the Cuban government, the US sources here mentioned assume even greater importance. All time periods are covered. Organization is alphabetical by US state; under each state collections are identified and annotated, and the addresses of the depository institutions are provided. The 520 entries are indexed by collection and by subject."-Choice
"He provides the reader interested in Cuban themes a veritable mine of information. In many ways, though, this is only to be expected from Professor Perez, clearly the most insightful (and most prolific) of historians around the world specializing in Cuban history. In sum, this is a fine work, detailing some 520 collections of archival documents found in the United States, which most Cuba-watchers were simply unaware of. Professor Perez is to be commended for using his vast knowledge of Cuban history to provide such a useful service to the academic community, for this collection is indeed a must for all interested in Cuban history."-Revista Interamericana De Bibliografia
