An Atlas and Survey of Latin American History makes the geography, the demography, and the political, social, and economic history of the region easily accessible in clearly drawn black-and-white maps and accompanying text. Fully up to date, it provides a topical overview of Latin American development from earliest times to the present day, bringing to light patterns of continuity and change.
The Atlas is ideal for beginning through advanced college students, area specialists, and secondary school AP students. It demonstrates the close linkages between Latin American history, culture, economic development, and geographic realities. Each entry and map is accompanied by a brief, carefully selected bibliography.
