Yet with the release of the boxed set "Cuba: I am Time" by Black Jackel Entertainment (true enough the cd's are housed in a small box of cigars), I find myself reaching more and more to the cigar box of 4 cd's rather than my tobacco supply.
Thirdly is "Bailar con Cuba" (Dance with Cuba), the core of the collection- holding many of the tunes that most people will recognize.
"Cuba I am Time," in its prose as well as its recordings, shows us that the secret to the greatness of Cuban song is the mixing and creolizing of many foreign, and at times contradictory, elements.

With the exception of the first chapter, the rest of the encyclopedia takes into consideration renowned figures who have made their mark on and/or off the Caribbean nation, coupled with events that have shaped the nation's history as well as its domestic and foreign policy.
However, the Encyclopedia of Cuba avoids extolling a single maxim of the Caribbean nation, and thus provides readers with a tool to unveiling Cuban history and its culture via the comparative accounts of Cubans living on the island and residing elsewhere.
Finally, the Encyclopedia of Cuba is work that provides students and instructors, as well as secondary-level and college libraries with a concise and brilliant analysis of Cuba's history, culture, and people.
