Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the removal of religious intolerance in Cuba during the 1990s. This removal was the result of a rethinking of the Cuban revolutionary project that followed the collapse of the Soviet bloc. The chapter discusses the visible increase in religious practice in Cuba despite the growing deprivation and ideological disorientation during the Special Period. It highlights the fact that in spite of several decades of atheist indoctrination, about 85 percent of Cubans were religious to some degree.
