Summary
Essays in volume 19 approach the provocative issues of religion, freedom of literary expression, and women's health care. The Catholic church in Cuba today is discussed in terms of its historic role, the current detente in its relations with the government, and the influence of national and international pressures. Protestantism in Cuba is represented by the experience of the Baptist church since Independence.
