Yankee Come Home : The Spanish-American War ended over a century ago, but its effects are with us still. In Yankee Come Home, William Craig travels through Cuba, the birthplace of American imperialism, to find out why our republican ideals died in the glory of San Juan Hill, and to reveal Guantanamo, the corner of Cuba we've never left. In doing so, he recounts more than a century of the fascinating, but none-too-flattering relationship between the United States and Cuba. Through present-day adventures - spirit-possession rituals, black market odysseys and roots-music epiphanies - Craig explores what that relationship has wrought in the lives of Cubans and Americans alike.
