Reasons of State opens in Paris just before the outbreak of World War I. There, a plump Latin American head of state enjoys the city's pleasures, both carnal and aesthetic.

As Cuba-born Carpentier charts the dictators career--his increasingly severe reprisals, his country's passage from boom to slump, his confrontations with liberal rebels, and finally Marxist revolutionaries--an incisive portrait of political power emerges

Music in Cuba by Alejo Carpentier( Book )
74 editions published between 1946 and 2004 in 6 languages and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: A publishing event: the foundational work on Cuban music by a major figure of the twentieth century, now in English for the first time. In the wake of the Buena Vista Social Club, the world has rediscovered the rich musical tradition of Cuba. A unique combination of popular and elite influences, the music of this island nation has fascinated since the golden age of the son and that New World aural collision of Africa and Europe that made Cuban music the rage in Paris, New York, and Mexico beginning in the 1920s. Originally published in 1946 and never before available in an English translation, Music in Cuba is not only the best and most extensive study of Cuban musical history, it is a work of literature in its own right. Drawing on such primary documents as obscure church circulars, dog-eared musical scores pulled from attics, and the records of the Spanish colonial authorities, Music in Cuba sweeps panoramically from the sixteenth into the twentieth century. Carpentier covers European-style elite Cuban music as well as the popular worlds of rural Spanish folk and urban Afro-Cuban music. In a substantial introduction based on extensive original research, Timothy Brennan explores Carpentier's career prior to the writing of his novels. Looking especially at Carpentier's work as a music reviewer, radio producer, and musical theorist, Brennan suggests new ways of thinking about the role of Latin American artists in Europe between the wars, and the central place of radio and music-club cultures in the European avant-gardes
