This chapter places Mills’s experiences in Cuba in the larger sociohistorical contemporaneous context. It depicts the major social and political transformations in the revolutionary process that were transpiring at the time Mills was on the island. It also considers wider global events of that summer, against the backdrop of Cold War tensions, of pertinence to Castro’s Cuba. In addition, the chapter describes the effervescent mood that permeated the island during Mills’s visit.

Keywords:   Revolutionary euphoria, Cold War, Castro’s Cuba
