More Spaniards arrived in Cuba after the island became independent from Spain in 1898 than during four centuries of Spanish colonial rule. This presentation examines the continuing dominant role of Spaniards in Cuba’s economy, how this was accomplished, and the impact of the arrivals on the culture and national identity of their host country.
