Beginning in the era of the Spanish conquest and taking the reader right up the present day, Dr. Gebelein’s book focuses on how the landscape of Cuba has changed and evolved into the environment we see today. It illustrates the range of factors (economic, political and cultural) that have determined Cuba’s physical geography, and explores the shifting conservation measures which have been instituted in response to the methods in agriculture and land management.
