8th Annual Meeting
- Annual Proceedings
The Eighth Annual Meeting of ASCE was held on August 1998 at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida. The number of attendees at the Eighth Annual Meeting exceeded 200 per day. The program covered a wide variety of topics, with about half of the sessions devoted strictly to economic topics and the other half dedicated to legal, sociological, and political science topics.
A highlight of the meeting was the keynote address by Professor Irving Louis Horowitz, Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Political Science at Rutgers University. He spoke about lessons that can be learned from Cuban communism, drawing on his own long experience in studying the Cuban revolution.
In September 1998, the Board voted to award “honorary membership in ASCE” to Marta Beatriz Roque Cabello, Félix Bonne Carcasses, René Gómez Manzano and Vladimiro Roca in recognition of their work and participation in ASCE.
