Description

A dramatic account of the pre-revolution era in Cuba, describing the culture of casinos, cabarets and drugs on an island frequented by Hollywood celebrities and infamous Mafia bosses. Mafia in Cuba is a tale of corruption and organized crime, where politicians are sold to the highest bidder and where real power lies with the Mafia and other U.S. interests. It describes a Havana dominated by drug trafficking, gambling and prostitution. A highly readable but rigorous study of a fascinating period of history from 1934 to 1958, this book uses both Cuban and U.S. sources to document the intertwined relationships between Washington, the Mafia and the pre-revolution governments in Cuba.
