From “Global Justice & Anti-Capitalism:”
Arturo Lopez-Levy will be in Berkeley to promote his new book on Cuba foreign affairs and talk about Cuban/Israeli relations in the Library at 1316 University Avenue, Berkeley. He is a research associate at Josef Korbel School of international Studies at the University of Denver is well known in the media as an expert on Cuban social and political life.
Mr. Lopez-Levy was born and raised in Cuba. He was a member of the Communist Youth Party for several years but left out of ideological differences. He continued his education at the University of Havana but finally left Cuba to further his doctoral studies in political theory which he pursues at the University of Denver. He has become a popular speaker around the country on U.S.-Cuba relationships, writing frequently about the issue in journals, newspapers (such as the Chicago Tribune, NY Times, Washington Post, Miami Herald, and the Baltimore Sun) and blogs. In 2010, he was one of the three Cubans (the only non-catholic) living overseas invited to participate in the dialogue with the Catholic Church at the time of the Church’s mediation about the release of prisoners and the dialogue with the Cuban government about the current economic reforms process.
