Cuba is the best-known country to remain socialist after the end of the Cold War. It also continues to arouse passions, both in support and against, all over the globe. Cuba lives in the shadow of the U.S., famously resisting three decades of embargo, attempts on Fidel Castro's life and vociferous Cuban-U.S. opposition. Four decades of revolution have created a unique country, which in the 1990s continued to create idiosyncratic solutions to its problems. Mixing socialism with capitalism, foreign investment with social organization, Cuban pesos with dollars, Cuba remains an exciting and ever changing challenge.

Cuba In Focus is one of a series of guides covering the countries of South and Central America and the Caribbean.
