Critical Lives: Che Guevara covers his entire life, including: Che's struggle to breathe-the Argentine youth almost crippled by asthma; Doctor Che- from his work in a leper colony to his travels throughout poverty-stricken Latin America; Soldier Che-his days as a doctor for Fidel Castro's troops lead to his joining of the military; Che the revolutionary-a guerrilla in Cuba; Che the intellectual-the renowned speaker/thinker/author also serves as president of Cuba's National Bank; Che's last stand-fomenting revolution in the Congo and Bolivia-and his execution in the Bolivian jungle; Che forever-the cultural icon; and The Return of Che -a hero's re-burial in Cuba and the schoolchildren's declaration: "We will be like Che."

Ted Henken, M.A., who is a doctoral candidate in Latin American Studies at Tulane University's Stone Center for Latin American Studies, has traveled to Cuba extensively to conduct research and attend academic seminars. His current research concerns the intersection between Cuba's second economy (cuentapropistas) and its emerging tourism economy. Currently Tulane's Cuban Studies Institute's in-country liaison and program coordinator in Cuba, Henken was born and raised in northwest Florida. As a producer for CBS News in New York City, Eric J. Luther has covered disputed elections, entertainment, and crime and punishment. His work at CBS has enabled him to expand his knowledge and grasp of news and public affairs while honing his writing and reporting skills. Coupled with his undergraduate work (at SMU, in Dallas, Texas) in philosophy and political science, Eric's work experience enables him to turn a critical yet objective eye on Che Guevara.
