Summary

El relato de las relaciones entre Cuba y Venezuela en los últimos 16 años narra el proceso de una colonización insólita e inusual, nunca antes vista en la historia. Es una historia singular: la de una invasión consentida.

La idea del libro es contar cómo Cuba, la isla con la economía más precaria del continente americano, ha logrado obtener una influencia determinante en el país con las mayores reservas de petróleo del mundo.

La nomenclatura cubana no sólo ha obtenido de Venezuela un subsidio equivalente a la ayuda soviética sino que, también, ha penetrado profundamente sus estructuras de poder al punto de tener asesores en la Presidencia y, prácticamente, en toda la administración pública. Para ello, los hermanos Fidel y Raúl Castro no han tenido que imponerse ni disparar un tiro. Lo peculiar aquí es cómo el gobierno venezolano se ha sometido voluntariamente a su régimen, de una manera que probablemente no se haya visto nunca en la geopolítica mundial.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The relationship between Cuba and Venezuela in the last 16 years narrates the process of an unusual and uncommon type of colonization, one never before seen in history. It is a unique story, one of consensual invasion.
 
The purpose of this book is to convey how Cuba, an island with the most precarious economy in the Americas, has managed to have and keep a significant influence over the country with the largest oil reserves in the world. Cuban leaders have not only obtained from Venezuela a subsidy equivalent to its previous Soviet aid but they have also deeply penetrated its structures of power to the point of having advisors in the Presidency and, practically, throughout all public administrations. Due to this, Fidel and Raul Castro have not had to forcefully impose themselves at all. The peculiar thing here is how the Venezuelan government has voluntarily submitted to the Cuban regime, in a way that has never been seen before in world geopolitics.
