President Obama announced this week that we can look forward to new, normalized (or at least normalizing) relations between the U.S. and Cuba. It’s a pretty big deal. (It’s also all thanks to the Orioles. Well, sort of.)
Hopkins foreign policy professor Piero Gleijeses thinks this is a good thing. He should know, too–he’s been traveling to Cuba for more than 30 years, and he’s also the only foreign scholar who’s been allowed to conduct research in that country’s archives.
