Cuba: The End of One Chapter is not Necessarily the Beginning of Another

The news of Fidel Castro’s death on November 25 was met with equally intense, if opposing, sentiment. While on the streets of Miami’s Little Havana critics gathered to commemorate a long-awaited day, the pages of Granma, the official publication of the Communist Party of Cuba, provided extended content aimed at demonstrating Fidel and the spirit of La Revolución remain as relevant and popular as ever.

Beyond the historic and, for many, emotional impact of the news, Castro’s death raises a series of questions as to the island nation’s future, its slow move toward economic reform and relationship with the United States.
