Cuban Studies Bibliography

This bibliography has been compiled to serve as a beginning point for researchers working in the area of Cuban Studies. Materials in the collections of several Tulane University Libraries comprise the vast majority of the entries here, and locations given refer to the following collections: Howard-Tilton Library (general stacks); Tulane’s Latin American Library (in the Howard-Tilton Library); Tulane School of Architecture Library (in Richardson Memorial Hall); Tulane Law School Library and the Tulane Medical School Library. The bibliography was originally compiled in December of 1997.

The bibliography begins with a section covering reference works of various sorts that should provide the researcher with very basic, beginning information and which should lead to larger bodies of related literature. While a few of the reference works are very general in nature, most have a Latin American, Caribbean, or completely Cuban focus. Types of reference works listed include research guides, encyclopedias and handbooks, statistical publications and compendia, biographical directories, maps, directories of individuals and institutions, bibliographies, and periodical indexes. The periodical indexes listed are ones that should provide information on either all or at least a number of subject areas for the region, but more subject-specific indexes should certainly be consulted as well for any extensive literature searches.

Subject areas for other parts of the bibliography were selected based on the current and proposed course offerings of Tulane’s Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute.

Materials selected for inclusion here are mainly publications from the past 10 years and, with a few exceptions, focus on the post-revolutionary era. The entries consist primarily of monographs, although in a few subject areas where it was felt that more items were needed to provide the user a substantial reading list, listings for periodical articles and book chapters have been included as well. In selecting items for inclusion here, an attempt was made to list materials representing varying points of view. Entries are arranged by title, and bracketed notes and/or library subject headings are provided for some entries where the title is not clearly indicative of content or of its direct relevance to Cuban Studies. Brief abstracts included with article citations come from various indexing databases.

While parts of this bibliography may seem rather lengthy, it should be noted that there was no attempt made at being exhaustive in any subject area. Researchers undertaking extensive literature reviews are urged to use this list as a beginning point, and to use bibliographies and periodical indexes, (those included here as well as more specialized ones) to supplement this bibliography .
