Back Channel to Cuba: The Hidden History of Negotiations between
Washington and Havana describes how serious negotiations have been
conducted by every presidential administration since Eisenhower's
through secret, back-channel diplomacy. The book offers a key
perspective on the normalization process underway and illuminates a
fascinating passage in U.S.-Cuban relations as it happens.
The authors will discuss how through extensive research, they
uncovered hundreds of formerly secret U.S. documents and conducted
interviews with dozens of negotiators, intermediaries, and policy
makers, including Fidel Castro and Jimmy Carter.
