Cathedral of St Mary in Miami, Florida
Miami is a city in southeastern Florida. As of the 2000 census, the city's population was 362,470, but the metropolitan areas's population was 5.4 million.

Miami has many links to Central America, Latin America, and the Caribbean, as well as being home to a large Spanish-speaking population, in particular a large Cuban community which makes up over a third of Miami's population. Because of these links with other parts of the western hemisphere, the city is sometimes known as the "Gateway to the Americas".

Miami is also the site of one of the largest and most important sea ports in the United States. The Port of Miami is used both for cargo, and passenger traffic, and is in fact the busiest passenger port in the country, and has been for over a decade. It is from the sea port that Miami gets two of its other nicknames: "Cargo Gateway of the Americas", and "Cruise Capital of the World" - the latter in recognition of the many cruise ships which sail from the port.

Attractions in the Miami area include:
Miami, Florida at night. The Bank of America tower is the building lit in pink.

    Product Description:
    It is where Fidel Castro raised money to overthrow Batista and where two generations of Castro's enemies have raised armies to overthrow him, so far without success. It is where the bitter opera of Cuban exile intersects with the cynicism of U.S. foreign policy. It is a city whose skyrocketing murder rate is fueled by the cocaine trade, racial discontent, and an undeclared war on the island ninety miles to the south.

    As Didion follows Miami's drift into a Third World capital, she also locates its position in the secret history of the Cold War, from the Bay of Pigs to the Reagan doctrine and from the Kennedy assassination to the Watergate break-in. Miami is not just a portrait of a city, but a masterly study of immigration and exile, passion, hypocrisy, and political violence.
