The information presented constitutes a cultural mapping of the rugged history of the Chinese community in Cuba, and one by one, each Sino-Cuban character traces a collective identity in a process of uninterrupted articulation. It states that these chapters are able to paint a picture of the evolution and resistance of the Chinese community in Cuba, and studies the process of hybridization, which has transformed it into its contemporary expression.
