Inhaltsangabe: The Encyclopedia examines urgent contemporary issues like economic and population growth, trade and international debt, tourism and the environment, as well as the long-term factors that have moulded Latin America as we find it today: the native flora and fauna, the emergence of early civilisations in Mexico and Peru, imperial domination over three centuries by Spain and Portugal, the struggle for independence in the nineteenth century, and the political turbulence of the twentieth. Coverage is provided also of music and literature, architecture, painting, and intellectual life, vividly reminding us that beyond today's headlines lies the culture of the tango and the samba, Borges and Neruda, Garcia Márquez and Diego Rivera, Villa Lobos and Bob Marley.
'A splendid achievement, a triumph of condensation, well-written, edited and illustrated ? This book is an essential work of reference for anyone studying, living in or doing business with Latin America and the Caribbean. It is also compulsive reading, full of fascinating information about this rich but neglected continent.' John Hemming, Geographical Magazine
'Fifty-five maps, a glossary, more than 200 illustrations ? and an excellent index make the volume a pleasure to use. Highly recommended.' Library Journal on the first edition
