Latin America: Books for High Schools. An Annotated Bibliography.
Farrell, Robert V., Comp.; Hohenstein, John F., Comp.
This bibliography, intended for use as a selection tool for social studies programs and libraries in order to supply secondary students and teachers with recent Latin American books, contains 171 annotated bibliographic citations prepared by the center for Inter-American Relations after examination of more than 1200 books for comprehensiveness, accuracy, usefulness, and readability. To emphasize the unity and the diversity of Latin American this bibliography is divided into two sections: one dealing with aspects of Latin America as a whole, and the second covering individual countries or geographical areas. Part one, arranged by subject, deals with general works, geography, history, culture, literature, ideas, economics, politics, hemisphere relations, sociology, and the dynamics of social change. Part two, arranged by geographic area, covers the countries from Mexico and the Caribbean southward to Chile and Argentina. Complete bibliographic information is provided, with emphasis on availability and price. Special features include an indication of the reading level for younger, average and better students; the marking of books that are especially useful with asterisks; a short list of reference sources for teachers and libraries; and, author and subject indices.
