Dateline Havana: The Real Story of U.S. Policy and the Future of Cuba
A new book release event and book-signing

Expertly researched and deftly reported, Dateline Havana is a probing exposé of U.S. policy and the future of Cuba on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Cuban Revolution. Covering art, music, and Cuban politics, Reese Erlich creates a tableau that is at once moving and informative.

Reporting from Havana and Miami, he explores Cuba’s strained history with the United States and the power of the Cuba Lobby. From Miami-based terrorists in Cuba to the green revolution in Cuban agriculture, he unearths telling details about U.S.-Cuba relations and present-day realities on the island. He also lays out the next American president’s options and challenges regarding Cuba now that Fidel has exited the stage.

Reese Erlich is co-author of the best-selling book Target Iraq: What the News Media Didn’t Tell You. In 2001, he produced a one-hour radio documentary, “The Struggle for Iran,” hosted by Walter Cronkite; he was also a segment producer for the public radio series Crossing East, which received a Peabody Award in 2007. He reports regularly for National Public Radio, Latino USA, Radio Deutche Welle, Australian Broadcasting Corp. Radio, and Canadian Broadcasting Corp. Radio. He also writes for Mother Jones, the San Francisco Chronicle, the St. Petersburg Times, the Dallas Morning News, and the Chicago Tribune.
