Having no official land border with any other country, the island of Cuba still has a small piece of territory encircled by barbed wire, extensive land mines, and occupied by hostile troops under a foreign flag. This occupied territory is the U.S. military base of Guantanamo. This book by Cuban journalist Roger Ricardo provides a detailed history of the U.S. base from the beginning of the century to the present day. Documenting alleged violations of Cuban territory originating from the Guantanamo base, the author reveals that Cuba has cashed none of the annual rental payments made by Washington. Guantanamo: The bay of discord presents the arguments by both governments on the control and ownership of the base.
