Marquez-Sterling Discusses Cuba 1952-1959

November 5th, 2009 by Adam


Manuel Marquez-Sterling, Plymouth author and professor emeritus of history at Plymouth State University, addressed an audience of more than 100 people at PSU’s Lamson Library Nov. 3.

Marquez-Sterling’s book, “CUBA 1952-1959,” discusses the ill-fated election and Cuba in those years from an insider’s perspective. Carlos Marquez-Sterling, father of the author, was expected to win the election for president by a landslide but theft of ballots prevented his confirmation, opening the door for Castro’s forces to come into power.

As it turns out, the talk was held on the anniversary of the Cuban election that led the island nation into decades of totalitarian tyranny that remains in force today.
