    50 years ago this week, the world stood on the brink of nuclear war as the Cuban Missile Crisis unfolded. The United States finally decided to first blockade rather than immediately attack Cuba to prevent the Soviet Union from finishing installation of missiles that could reach the continental United States. This article introduces the little-known.   The book is part biography and part history of Cuba's main cash crop -- sugar. Lobo is not very well-known, but as Rathbone tells NPR's Guy Raz, that is why he chose to write about him.
