Abstract

The assassination of Carlos Muñiz Varela in Puerto Rico marks the turning point in the Cuban civil wars of the 1970s—a decade marked by repressive politics in Cuba and attempts at engagement by leftist Cuban exiles, which in turn produced violent responses by other exilic groups. The Muñiz Varela tragedy is examined as part of a broader context, one that crystallizes how undercover politics and ideology still define the Caribbean in the decades that follow the triumph of the Cuban Revolution.
