Description
Summary:

This volume is the first multidisciplinary guide to the study of Latin American studies to provide both broad coverage and substantial depth. It includes essays on research trends and approaches, provides entries on over 6,000 bibliographic and research sources, and selectively identifies specialized collections and resources in United States research libraries. The contributors provide the perspectives of Latin American bibliographers, researchers, and Latin American scholars.

The book is divided into fifteen chapters, beginning with a general bibliography of interdisciplinary sources. The fourteen chapters that follow cover disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Each chapter includes an introductory essay or essays, one or more bibliographic sections, and a section describing relevant special collections. The work also includes subject, author, and title indexes. The multidisciplinary nature of the work will make it valuable to students, librarians, and faculty members in Latin American Studies.
