Fifteen leading academic specialists on contemporary Latin America from several different disciplines have contributed to this innovative collection, prepared in connection with a public television series. Three themes are discussed: the changing roles of the Latin American state; the place of new social and cultural movements (including feminist groups and the reconstituted Church); and emerging social id-entities in the Americas, including those of indigenous movements and of Latin American and Caribbean immigrants to the United States. A stimulating volume.
