Jose Marti and the Emigre Colony in Key West: Leadership and State Formation

Synopsis

This in-depth analysis of political leadership and state formation centers on the Cuban leader Jose Marti (1853-1895) and his relationship with Key West, Florida, the major Cuban emigre colony of the time. The first study to explore specifically Marti's leadership qualities and style of leadership, the book demonstrates that Marti actively sought leadership of the Cuban struggle for independence, effectively applying his personal qualities to meet the needs and desires of his community of emigres in Key West. Ronning shows how Marti never lost sight of what he perceived as higher humanitarian and humanistic goals for a truly just republic.
