Latin America In Perspective
Latin America In Perspective
By Oxford Analytica
Houghton Mifflin, 1991, 363 pp

An extraordinarily useful primer on contemporary Latin America, surveying the region's demography, social structure, education, culture, politics, economics and international relations. Prepared by Malcom Deas of Oxford and a team of British researchers, the volume covers a great deal of ground in clear, straightforward and occasionally elegant prose, drawing discerningly on a generation of social science and historical research about the region.
