"Beloved corpses, you that once
Were the hope of my Homeland,

The dust of your decaying bones!"
--quoted by Castro in his Courtroom Speech


The death of communism as a historical force, reflected in the transition of the ex-Soviet block into a pseudo Third World to be integrated into the planning of a global economy, leaves Cuban-Americans in a critical position; many observers assume that a socialist Cuba will go the way of Eastern Europe and China in the ideological stalemate between late-capitalism and authoritarian Socialism. Simultaneously, many Cuban expatriates living in the United States are preparing to invest in a post-Castro Cuba, to redress what they see as the economic injustices of the 1959 revolution.
