By Paul Ryer, new book, youth cultures Add comments

Ethnocuba is pleased to announce the first book of 2011, Denise F. Blum’s Cuban Youth and Revolutionary Values: Educating the New Socialist Citizen, University of Texas Press.   Here we reproduce some information from the publisher:

Drawing on extensive fieldwork in Havana’s secondary schools, Cuban Youth and Revolutionary Values is a remarkable ethnography, charting the government’s attempts to transform a future generation of citizens. While Cuba’s high literacy rate is often lauded, the little-known dropout rates among teenagers receive less scrutiny…. Despite the fact that primary-school enrollment rates exceed those of the United States, the reverse is true for the crucial years between elementary school and college. After providing a history of Fidel Castro’s educational revolution begun in 1953, Denise Blum delivers a close examination of the effects of the program, which was designed to produce a society motivated by benevolence rather than materialism. Denise F. Blum is an assistant professor at Oklahoma State University.

    I would say for the most part Castro has succeeded in his pursuit of a benevolent population. However as an American citizen I would find this lifestyle undesirable.
