Abstract

The topic of Ayorinde's book is timely considering the public emergence of Afro-Cuban religions during the years since the collapse of Communist Eastern Europe and the ensuing economic crisis in Cuba. While a number of studies have approached Afro-Cuban ethnicity from historical and (to a lesser extent) sociological perspectives, Ayorinde's book offers an account of the political significance of Afro-Cuban cultural heritage in the historical formation of Cuban national identity.
