Abstract

The national ideology that developed during the Cuban independence movement in the 19th century was improbable. By 1898, Cuban leaders declared their nation a raceless polity, eschewing both the U.S. binary system and the Haitian model of a black republic. Alejandra Bronfman's cogently argued work demonstrates that translating these ideas into governance of an actual republic during the early 20th century proved a different matter.
