Abstract

With full diplomatic relations restored yesterday between the U.S. and Cuba, we review From Cuba with Love, which dives into the nexus of sex, money, and deprivation in Cuba as it examines jineterismo, the local practice of pursuing relationships with foreigners in order to gain access to hard currency. Natalie Allen writes that the author takes the reader through the history of sexuality in Cuba via interviews with young women and men negotiating their relationships with both foreigners and the socialist state.
