This book by Vegard Bye analyzes the economic reforms and political adjustments that took place in Cuba during the era of Raúl Castro’s leadership and its immediate aftermath, the first year of his successor, Miguel Díaz-Canel. Faced with economic challenges and a political crisis of legitimacy now that the Castro brothers are no longer in power, the Cuban Revolution finds itself at another critical juncture, confronted with the loss of Latin American allies and a more hostile and implacable US administration.

Article by Trond Heitmann, Østfold University College, in Journal of Comparative Social Work, Vol 14 No 1 (2019): Special issue on Welfare in Latin America and the Nordic countries

Published May 22, 2019 11:04 AM

Based on intensive fieldwork with local groups in Oaxaca Mexico in 2015, Alexander Dunlap, University of Oslo, in this book demonstrates the complications and problems that emerge with the current regime of ‘sustainable development’ and wind energy projects in Mexico. Wind energy development, in Mexico and most countries, fall into a ‘roll out’ neoliberal strategy that is justified by climate change mitigation programs that are continuing a process of land and wind resources grabbing for profit. The result has been an exaggeration of pre-existing problems in communities around land, income-inequality, local politics and, contrary to public relations stories, is has been devastating to traditional livelihoods and socio-ecological relationships.
