"This effort is named Obitel (observatorio de la telenovela iberoamericana): Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico, Spain, Portugal, Peru, Hispanic USA. Each country writes down its own chapter with a common scheme and a defined number of pages. So we have 10 books with the evolution of telenovelas in each country and an annual overview written by the editors Immacolatta Vasallo de Lopes (Brazil) and Guillermo Orozco (Mexico).

All of the work Professor Fuenzalida mentions are available on the Obitel website: http://obitel.net
