Chapter Summary

Three particular historical developments linked the emergence and development of the Caribbean network. First, in Latin America Spanish immigration into Cuba was surpassed only by Spanish immigration to Argentina in the early 20th century Second, this network spread at the same time as United States (US) military and economic influence stretched throughout the Caribbean Basin beginning in the 1890s. Third, development of a strong anarchist presence in Cuba facilitated the network's emergence. This chapter examines how anarchists of different nationalities but linked by language, geography and politics developed movements in these specific locales and then functioned as part of regional networks that sometimes overlapped. The Caribbean and Mexican networks allowed anarchists throughout this vast area the ability to communicate, fund and understand their pursuits for anarchist-defined freedom in a comparative context.
