CHASE, Michelle. The Country and the City in the Cuban Revolution. [online]. 2011, n.73, pp.121-142. ISSN 0121-5612.

This article examines the interplay between city and country in the earliest years of the Cuban Revolution of 1959. It argues that the mass movement of Cubans, especially youths, between urban and rural areas was a major factor in contributing to the radical conscious-ness of the 1960s. At the same time, these early initiatives also contributed to the growing disaffection with the Cuban revolution. The article, thus, lends insight into the excitement and polarization of Cuba's "revolutionary moment."

Keywords : Cuba; revolution; socialism; cities; 1960; the Left.
