This work explores how relationships of blood, marriage, sex, and residence work in each type of Cuban family, particularly as it is affected by Cuba’s struggle to transform its economy. It also examines historical perspectives on the contemporary Cuban family, ethnicity and race, marriage, the extended family, family rights, the emigrating family, United States' citizenship issues, religion, and the Cuban-American family.
Tables list such details as population numbers, age, life expectancy, growth, birth, and death rates, immigration and mortality rates, HIV rates, and literacy. The book also includes narratives of childhood memories from pre-revolutionary Cuba to the late 20th century, providing fresh insights into the cultural value attached to the family.

From Chapter 4, p. 74: "Cuba’s socialist government is wrestling with many of the same challenges to family life as the rest of the world. Family form is not consistent and is in a state of flux. Perhaps the Cuban American Alliance Education Fund’s report described the country’s emphasis best. Social concerns are prioritized within the structure of the political system and directed toward different sectors of society -- children, youth, women, seniors, and the disabled. The legal emphasis on equality of men and women and of children and the obligation of parents to provide for their children is basic to a better life for the families in Cuba."

_The Cuban Family: Custom and Change in an Era of Hardship_ Reviewed by _Reference and Research Book News_, Vol. 19, No. 1, Feb. 2004, p. 129.
The author provides a sociological overview of the Cuban families living in Cuba, the United States, or divided between the two. The impact of economic conditions after the end of Soviet subsidization is discussed and the role of Cuban law in the lives of families is explored. The politics of emigration form a central part of the discussion. The text concludes with a presentation of different family narratives."
