← Back to Cuban Collections

The Cuban Books and Pamphlets Collection includes materials on Cuba’s colonial past, efforts for self-governance, slavery, nationalism, foreign investment, crime, women’s rights, spirituality, popular culture and human rights. This collection is growing in collaboration with international partners who are working to identify and digitize Cuban monographs for which we have the right/permission to reproduce and provide public access. The scope includes all monographs published in Cuba, as well as the publications of important Cuban intellectuals published outside of Cuba.

A number of these are truly unique items, and have been identified as such by special review as part of the Social Science Research Council Cuba Libro project: click here link for details.
