Covering one of the most musically diverse regions in the world, Musics of Latin America emphasizes music as a means of understanding culture and society: each author balances an analysis of musical genres with discussion of the historical and cultural trends that have shaped them.

Robert Lowell Moore Jr., was born on October 31, 1925 in Boston, Massachusetts. He attended Middlesex School, Belmont Hill School and Harvard College. He published several novels using information gathered from travelling and his experiences as main ideas. In 1963 he joined the US Army Special Forces as a civilian with special permission from President John F. Kennedy, . He trained for almost a year and then went with the Special Forces to Vietnam. His experiences in Vietnam served as the background material for "The Green Berets" which was published in 1965. Other titles include "The French connection" and the Happy Hooker.
