Raúl Eduardo Chao received his doctorate from Johns Hopkins University and after some time in industry spent 18 years in the academic world, as Full Professor and Director of the Departments of Chemical Engineering at the Universities of Puerto Rico and Detroit. Chao has written half a dozen books and numerous articles on science and business, as well as a score of books on the History of Cuba. He and his wife Olga live in Lakeland, Florida.
The American occupation of Cuba from 1898 to 1902 produced serious physical, educational and economic transformations in Cuba. Politically, it sponsored a Constitutional Assembly that gave the Republic of Cuba its first Constitution, where the Platt Amendment, resisted by most Cubans, tried to continue for years the American tutelage. This book unmasks the falsehoods that Marxists and leftists have propagated for many years about this historical period and documents the work of repairing the destruction that the war caused in Cuba, as well as the efforts to prepare Cubans to successfully face life as a republic.
