Focusing on a period of history rocked by four armed movements, Lillian Guerra traces the origins of Cubans' struggles to determine the meaning of their identity and the character of the state, from Cuba's last war of independence in 1895 to the consolidation of U.S. neocolonial hegemony in 1921. Guerra argues that political violence and competing interpretations of the "social unity" proposed by Cuba's revolutionary patriot, Jose Marti, reveal conflicting visions of the nation--visions that differ in their ideological radicalism and in how they cast Cuba's relationship with the United States.As Guerra explains, some nationalists supported incorporating foreign investment and values, while others sought social change through the application of an authoritarian model of electoral politics; still others sought a democratic government with social and economic justice. But for all factions, the image of Marti became the principal means by which Cubans attacked, policed, and discredited one another to preserve their own vision over others'. Guerra's examination demonstrates how competing historical memories and battles for control of a weak state explain why polarity, rather than consensus on the idea of the "nation" and the character of the Cuban state, came to define Cuban politics throughout the twentieth century.

Guerra, proudly Cuban although not born in Cuba, spent years in. .

Her book focuses on the period of nation-building that took place during the first decades of the 20th century, and discusses what has been said and done, questioned and justified, in the name of José Martí. Many Cubans, including Guerra, ask themselves whether Cuban history would have been different if Martí would have survived.

Guerra’s commitment to continuously and consistently exploring the view from below makes her book particularly rewarding.

The uncertainty of Cuba’s sovereignty and the precariousness of its internal harmony may actually help explain the basis .

The uncertainty of Cuba’s sovereignty and the precariousness of its internal harmony may actually help explain the basis of Martí ’s appeal. Two years earlier, a law had established the date of Martí’s death on May 19, 1895, as a national day of mourning. Yet, at the same time, it argues that conflicting views of the nation predated the myth of Martí even as they became bound up in it. Martí came to embody the requirement of social unity behind the cause of the 1895 War - independence - that lay at the heart of each of these ideal nations.
