Sugar & Railroads: A Cuban History, 1837-1959
Oscar Zanetti (au); Alejandro Garcia (au); Bridget Brereton (fr). Traces the story of railroads (RR) in Cuba from their intro. in the 19th cent. through the 1959 Revolution. The book uses the development of the Cuban rail transport system to provide a fascinating perspective on Cuban history, particularly the story of its predominant agro-industry, sugar. While RR facilitated the sugar industry’s rapid growth after 1837, sugar interests determined where RR would be built & who would benefit from them. Explores the implications of this symbiotic relationship for the technological development of the RR, the economic evolution of Cuba, & the lives of the RR workers. The economic benefits that accompanied the rise of RR in Europe & the U.S. were not repeated in Cuba. Illustrations.
