The March issue of The Internet Review of Books is up and, as always, there are several interesting non-fiction and fiction reviews. Also, my review of The Top Ten Myths of American Health Care is in the Brief Reviews section. What caught my eye are the two books about Cuba -- Havana Nocturne: How the Mob Owned Cuba and Then Lost it to the Revolution and Havana Before Castro: When Cuba was a Tropical Playground. Clive Foss, Georgetown history professor and author of a recent Fidel Castro biography, reviews the two together. Sounds like they would make a great Spring Break double header.
