State of Ambiguity brings together scholars from North America, Cuba, and Spain to challenge this narrative, presenting republican Cuba instead as a time of meaningful engagement--socially, politically, and symbolically.

Addressing a wide range of topics--civic clubs and folkloric societies, science, public health and agrarian policies, popular culture, national memory, and the intersection of race and labor--the contributors explore how a broad spectrum of Cubans embraced a political and civic culture of national self-realization. Together, the essays in State of Ambiguity recast the first republic as a time of deep continuity in processes of liberal state- and nation-building that were periodically disrupted--but also reinvigorated--by foreign intervention and profound uncertainty.Contributors.
