This brief volume is an eloquent statement on the meaning of José Martí's thought as well as on how his thought has been harnessed to the needs of ideology in present-day Cuba. Hence, José Martí, the United States, and the Marxist Interpretation of Cuban History should quite properly be viewed as a contribution to the sociology of knowledge, and the political processing of the literature.Professor Ripoll's volume gives special attention to Martí's writings on the United States: without sparing the colonialist and annexationist currents of the times, Martí in his writing demonstrated a full and balanced sense of pluralist currents in the United States.The author sees Martí, in his desire for redemption, as a truer socialist and revolutionary than those who seek to cloak themselves in his words. Because Martí believed freedom to be indispensable for the advancement of society, efforts to hitch Martí to a single ideological post are considered futile.

Concerned with what Cuban radicals have thought about their na-tion's protracted struggle for independence, Sheldon B. Liss looks at each one's mode of analysis, position on the class struggle, ideas on reform or revolution, and search for community. Each writer's beliefs about ethics, morality, religion, social mobility, political control, aesthetics, and quality of life are subjected to scrutiny by Liss. He also considers their views on Cuban-United States relations, their perceptions of the state and power, and their relationships to the means of production and workers' movements.

Jose Marti contributed greatly to Cuba's struggle for independence from Spain with words as well as revolutionary action. Although he died before the formation of an independent republic, he has since been hailed as a heroic martyr inspiring Cuban republican traditions. During the twentieth century, traditionally nationalistic literature has reinforced an uncritical idealization of Marti and his influence. However, new approaches have recently explored the formation, reception, uses and abuses of the Marti myth. The essays in this volume analyze the influence of Jose Marti - poet, scholar, and revolutionary - on the formation of often-competing national identities in post-independence Cuba. By exploring the diverse representations and interpretations of Marti, they provide a critical analysis of the ways in which both the left and right have used his political and literary legacies to argue their version of contemporary Cuban 'reality.'

Jos   Mart   and the Future of Cuban Nationalisms

López examines the role of José Martí's writing on concepts of Cuban nationalism that fueled the 1895 colonial revolution against Spain and have since continued to inform conflicting and violently opposed visions of the Cuban nation. He examines how the same body of work has come to be equally championed by opposing sides in the ongoing battle between the Cuban nation-state, which under Castro has consistently claimed Martí as a crucial inspiration for its Marxist revolutionary government, and the diasporic communities in Miami and elsewhere who still honor Martí as a figure of hope for the Cuban nation in exile. He also shows how, more recently, Martí has become an international as well as national icon, as postcolonial and New Americanist scholars have appropriated parts of his writings and message for use in their own self-described "hemispheric" and even "planetary" critiques of Western imperialist projects in Latin America and beyond. As the first study to examine the impact of Martí's writings on both Cubans and Cuban Americans and to consider the ongoing polemic over Martí as part of the larger postcolonial problem of nation building, López's study also considers the more general issue of literature within nationalist projects. He illuminates the common concepts and ideas that underlie the ongoing ideological chasm between the Cuban nation-state and the Cuban nation in exile and offers the possibility of a new way of reading and understanding notions of national identity that have historically both enabled and delimited the ways in which Latin Americans and U.S. Hispanics have understood and defined themselves.
