Helen Yaffe

The Cuban revolution endures - for the Cuban people, and for socialism.

Historian Helen Yaffe explores the characteristics of Cuba's longterm socialist revolution - from the nation's commitment to healthcare and education as universal rights across society, to the revolution's capacity for self-critique and mass mobilization to build a better world for its citizens.

Helen is author of the new book We Are Cuba! How a Revolutionary People Have Survived in a Post-Soviet World from Yale University Press.
