Latin American Studies: An Annotated Bibliography of Core Worksby Ana Maria Cobos
Synopses & Reviews
This work, designed as an acquisitions tool for schools and libraries, is an annotated bibliography of approximately 1,400 recommended books published from 1986 through 1999 in the field of Latin American studies. It is divided into chapters that deal with reference works, descriptive accounts and travel guides, the humanities, language and literature, the social sciences, and science and technology. For the purposes of this book, Latin America is defined as all geographic locations south of the Rio Grande. While these are chiefly Spanish and Portuguese speaking regions, works about French, English, and Dutch speaking areas are also included. The literary works of authors living abroad are included if they are considered "quintessentially Latin American."

Selections were made based on reviews in scholarly journals and major book review publications. Works are organized into sections on the humanities, languages and literature, the social sciences, and science and technology. Some 1400 sources published between 1986 and 2000 are cited.
