There are so many superficial books on South America -- usually written by casual travellers or by journalists with hobbies to ride -- that it is a pleasure to recommend this really sound work, the product of a study group at Chatham House under the chairmanship of Philip Guedalla. The volume deals with the continent's geography, population, politics, history, economic and social development, religious and cultural problems, and its international relations. There is an appendix and several maps.
