Latin America
By F. A. Kirkpatrick
Macmillan, 1939, 456 pp.

Here is a sound, scholarly and carefully organized survey of the human geography of the republics of Latin America and the island colonies in the Caribbean. Unlike so many of the current works on our southern neighbors, this is not a superficial report after a quick trip, but a synthesis of data gathered during many years of research and travel. The author, professor of geography at the University of Michigan, is now chief of the Latin American section of the Office of Coördinator of Information.
