Competing voices from Revolutionary Cuba – edited by Peter McKenna and John M. Kirk
Much of what is known about Cuba is learned from the news media. What if the media is biased? What if the media is not providing an accurate picture of Cuba?

This book discusses the “origins of the Cuban revolution.” It also examines the relationship between Cuba and the United States, especially our trade relationship and our thoughts about Castro; the effects of the collapse of the Soviet Union on Cuba; the evolution of Cuba and what’s in store for Cuba’s future.
Competing voices from The Pacific War – edited by Chris Dixon, Sean Brawley & Beatrice Trefal
“This book explores the dramatic and bloody struggle that rages across the Asia-Pacific region during the 1930s and 1940s. The sources included here highlight the ways in which the war was experienced, understood and remembered by those caught up in one of the twentieth century’s most bitter conflicts. By providing first-hand accounts, from ordinary ‘foot soldiers’ as well as generals, from Japanese as well as Allied participants and from civilians as well as combatants, the authors enable readers to assess the conflict from a range of perspectives. The book covers the major turns of the conflict, from the lead-up to the attack at Pearl Harbor in December 1941, to the Japanese surrender in September 1945.” – p. xi
