Designed to expose readers to some of the most important critical thinking by anthropologists across a wide range of issues, this anthology combines a variety of works that examine Latin American cultures from a number of different perspectives.

Very accessible and perceptive, it covers a wide range of topics — beginning with a general overview of Latin America (observations about size of land mass, geography, population size and growth rates) and then highlighting some of the cultural characteristics that permit us to talk about "Latin America" — balancing the incredible cultural diversity with some of the overriding features that give at least the appearance of "similarity."
