Description: A companion volume to a major PBS series premiering in January 1993, thisanthology provides a comprehensive overview of the major regions and currentissues in Latin America. Each of the volume's thirteen chapters correspondswith a segment of the series and contains a wealth of primary and secondarysource material, including speeches, letters, government documents, newspaperand magazine articles, and essays. Each chapter has a specific thematic andgeographical focus: the chapter on women, for example, features readings onChile, providing background on the recent political and economic upheaval thathas had an especially dramatic influence on women's lives, while the chapter onreligion examines the link between the renewed spiritual revival and theologicaldebate in Brazil and Nicaragua and the marked renewal of social activism inthose countries.
