Praise for earlier editions: "Deserves serious consideration for use at the undergraduate level.... Will provide undergraduates with a broad understanding of the evolution of the issues & theoretical frameworks that have been at the center of this field of study." Journal of Third World Studies "The articles are short, up-to-date, & concise. Exactly what is needed for introductory students. The range of material it covers is thorough. It offers both cross-cutting articles by theme as well as country-by-country material. The writing style throughout is clear & easy to understand.... A most worthwhile book!" Pauline Hansen-Vaillancourt Universite du Quebec a Montreal "A fine job.... This book should meet the need for today's increasingly multidisciplinary courses introducing North American students to the vast & varied region of Latin America." William E. Melvin Memphis State University
