History Books

The "history books" category is probably our biggest selection of books on Cuba. You'll find here books about the history of Cuba, also on the history of the Mafia in Havana or the history of the Cuban baseball. Some are more specific to remarkable events like the 1959 Cuban revolution - an armed conflict - or the Cuban missile crisis and the cold war. Others are dedicated to the major figure of the Cuban revolution like Fidel Castro and Che Guevara.

If you're asking yourself: who ruled Cuba before the Cuban revolution? How was the Cuban missile crisis resolved? or if you just want to know a bit more about the Cuban government history or get a definition of the bay of pigs, this is a place to look!
