In her book ‘Before “Cuba Libre”: The making of Cuba’s first president Tomás Estrada Palma,’ García showcased an intimate historical account of the known idealistic, patriotic, revolutionary, meticulously honest, but stubborn president Tomás Estrada Palma. The book begins in central New York, where Estrada was living in exile at the time of his election as president, and follows through his journey as he returns to his native country, Cuba.

García did an excellent work identifying the facts from the many rumors that existed through the limited pile of information available about Palma’s earlier years. From Palma’s involvement with politics and in the fight for independence from Spain, to having been captured as a prisoner of war, to his career in Europe and America, and to his release were thoroughly covered by García. The struggles of the liberators under international law and the importance of Palma’s public relation campaigns were discussed as well. The book highlights, mostly, Tomás Estrada Palma’s life outside of Cuba, which is the least known.

Indeed, ‘Before “Cuba Libre”: The making of Cuba’s first president Tomás Estrada Palma’ is a well-researched piece with numerous source citations and historical photographs to completely present a solid and well-written summary of a chapter in Cuba’s history. This historical book will be part of the upcoming 2017 Frankfurt Intl Book Fair happening on October 11, 2017. Know history; make history. Be sure to grab a copy.
