This work is the only comprehensive, bilingual reference work on the period from the beginnings to 1940. It combines the features of a reference tool with those of a textbook. There are short primary source excerpts in Spanish and English throughout the book. For the first time, this material is accessible to interdisciplinary women's studies scholars and students who lack adequate Spanish reading proficiency and must rely on English translations.
Dr. Pouwels is Professor of Spanish Language and Latin American Literature at the University of Central Arkansas.
