Professor Saragoza lays out the challenges facing new leadership in Cuba following Fidel and Raul Castro’s long domination of the island. What policies in politics, economics, social structures, and culture will this new leadership adopt? And how will Cubans manage relationships with the United States, a neighbor so close, so powerful, and so often hostile? Add Cuba’s dealings with Latin American states and the rest of the global community to the daunting agenda they must take up. The recent thaws in our own relationships with Cuba, whatever their successes or failures, now seem in doubt. Let’s see if OLLI and Professor Saragoza can help answer what is indeed a provocative question: whither Cuba? We might also ask: whither our relations with a neighbor in transition?
