Abstract

Understanding Contemporary Latin America was designed to be “a basic interdisciplinary resource for use in college and university classrooms, foreign service seminars, and corporate training programs, as well as by interested individuals.” It is also a welcome addition to reading lists for students who are studying in Latin America and/or for study abroad advisors looking for a general overview of the region. The book encompasses within its scope all of the Western Hemisphere south of the United States, including the Anglo, French, and Dutch Caribbean. It is appropriate both for students studying in one country who are looking to understand their experiences within a broader cultural context and for those whose studies will take them to more than one country.
