Chapter 5 shifts attention away from Cubans and their Mexican supporters to examine the mind set and experiences of Spanish immigrants in Mexico and the Mexicans who rallied to the cause of Spanish colonialism, or “Cuba Española.” Starting with an exploration of Spanish ideas about nation and empire in late nineteenth century Spain and Mexico, the chapter goes on to consider the Mexican states’ strategic alliance with Spain and the ensuing verbal and physical battles between Spaniards, Cubans and Mexican in Mexico over the fate of the island of Cuba and Mexico’s allegiances. The chapter ends with a debate between two prominent Mexican intellectuals regarding Mexico’s diplomatic or historical responsibility toward Cuba in the on going crisis, which was intended to quell the passions of all parties involved by making a case for Mexico’s neutrality, but instead made clear the alliance between Mexican conservatives and Spanish immigrants and the links between late nineteenth-century liberalism and Pan-Hispanism.
