This chapter defines and develops the concept of the Gulf World that is at the core of the book, tracing the evolution of the region from the 1600s forward. It then takes a long historical view of Cuban migration in the region from the 1820s through the 1890s focusing on famous figures like José María Heredia and Pedro de Santacilia as well as Antonio Maceo and José Martí and demonstrating that their lives and travels spanned Cuba, Mexico and the United States. The chapter ends with a close look at migration, flight and exile in the context of the War of 1895 waged between Cuban insurgents and Spanish colonial forces, which culminated in the Spanish American war.

Keywords:   Cuban migration, Jose María Heredia, Antonio Maceo, Pedro Santacilia, Mexico, Cuba, Cuban insurgents, Spanish American War
