This is a comprehensive introductory guide to research on Latin America in the social sciences and the humanities. Thirty-seven chapters describe the many types of resources and research techniques available for the study of the region, identify major reference works in the field, and offer suggestions for academic training, travel, and professional development. With an author/title reference-source index, a detailed subject and institutional index, and a guide to acronyms and abbreviations. Designed to address the research needs of students, scholars, and librarians throughout the English-speaking world, this book complements SCONUL's Latin American Bibliography: A Guide, edited by L. Hallewell (1978) and is the result of extensive Anglo-American collaboration.
