Mike Gonzalez (born 1943) is a British historian and literary critic, who was Professor of Latin American Studies in the Hispanics Department of the University of Glasgow.[1]

He has written widely on Latin America, especially Cuba and the Cuban Revolution of 1959. Gonzalez characterizes Cuba as a state-capitalist economy rather than socialist.

A long-time member of the British Socialist Workers Party, he testified in Tommy Sheridan's defence at the Sheridan defamation trial and HM Advocate v Sheridan and Sheridan. Gonzalez is also a member of Solidarity - Scotland's Socialist Movement, the party Sheridan formed after the split in the Scottish Socialist Party.
