This beautifully presented six-volume encyclopedia expands on the 1996 edition, edited by Barbara A. Tenenbaum et al., continuing the earlier work's tradition of providing the best scholarship on Latin American history and culture.
Large portions of the articles have been replaced, revised, and updated. Time periods range from the prehistoric to contemporary Latin America. The broad geographic scope includes not only Latin America but also Spanish Brazil, the Portuguese Empire, and non-Spanish-speaking Caribbean countries.
Other unique features include maps for all Latin American countries, national statistics, and extensive chronology. Readers may notice a distinct focus on the political, social, and economic history of Latin America.
