When it comes to Cuba, the Trump Administration has largely reversed the Obama-era policy of engagement. Drawing on ethnographic data of younger Cubans, they reveal not only the widespread demoralization and cynicism on the island but also how Trump's neoconservative policies aimed at deterritorializing the country have failed. Hard power is not enough. Disillusionment with the Castro regime and the Cuban Communist Party has hardly laid the groundwork for the collapse of the Cuban government.
