Impartial, modern, and friendly, this book introduces readers to the civilization and culture of Latin America— from the most obscure beginnings to the present—and at the same time provides them with opportunities to improve their listening, speaking and writing skills. Comprehensive and chronological in approach, it offers well-researched coverage that goes beyond historical facts to include aspects of modern interest, sociology, economy, politics, philosophy, literature, arts, and communication. It covers the traditions in all of Spanish America—"Mesoamerica" and the Caribbean, as well as South America. It uses a rich and formal vocabulary, including new words recently incorporated into Spanish. Cultural glosses or footnotes, written in Spanish, provide explanations, if necessary.
