It is often forgotten that, at the start of Lyndon Johnson’s Presidency, Cuba, after Moscow, was the number one concern for U.S. foreign policy analysts and Latin American hemispheric relations. The fear of ‘another Cuba’ would haunt LBJ and framed his response to the Dominican crisis. LBJ’s task in Cuba was far from straight forward and his options vast, but at the same time consequence-laden. How did LBJ fundamentally frame the Cuban problem and how did this impinge upon his actions toward that small revolutionary state only 90 miles from Florida? What did he do, why and what does this tell us about the foreign policy of a much-maligned President? In this overview analysis Hughes outlines how LBJ was brilliant and fortunate, hesitant and decisive, attentive and passive, insightful and prone to muddled analogies. His actions were the epitome of his own disposition. This is the story of how LBJ neutered Fidel Castro.
