Summary
"This book re-examines the role of the intellectual within the revolutionary project in post-Soviet Cuban culture. Through close critical readings of a representative set of contemporary Cuban novels and works of visual art, the author argues that friendship and gender, rather than ideology, account for the intellectuals' fidelity to the truth of the Revolution. This volume demonstrates that masculine sociability is the key to understanding the longevity of Cuba's socialist regime. It also examines in detail the sociology of cultural administration -- production, dissemination, reception, and interpretation -- of intellectual labor in Cuba. Furthermore, it maps the emergent ethical paradigms that allow Cuban intellectuals to envision a post-revolutionary future"--
