Living Ideology in Cuba. Socialism in Principle and Practice. Katherine A. Gordy

Juan Carlos Medel


This book represents an important contribution for studies on ideology.
Katherine Gordy, professor of Political Science at San Francisco State University,
develops an excellent analysis of ideology and the production of subjects and
subjectivities. Her book challenges traditional negative approaches to study
the concept of ideology, offering a more positive interpretation of the concept.
Her main argument is that critical thought and critical contestation are central
features of Cuban socialism, rather than a threat to it. In this way, against the
official anti-Cuban idea of “lack of debate” in the Revolution, Gordy shows how
open and intense have been the political debates in Cuba in the last decades.
