This book's interdisciplinary approach offers a basic, yet comprehensive introduction to contemporary Latin America. Erminio Braidotti traces its development, explains how it works today, and points to where Latin America is headed. In a world of ever-increasing global economic agreements, political connections and cultural ties, it is both imperative and beneficial that we know and value our own neighbors more-and this book is a decisive step in that direction.
