Latin America: The Revolution of Hope.
Salcedo, Jose Joaquin; And Others
Latin America is a continent with a great deal of poverty, ignorance, and violence. This book describes the problems that plague the region and explains how and why they have gone unsolved. Change can come about only through real and effective participation by men and women in the political and economic activities of their nations. Organized into 3 parts, this volume contains 16 chapters. Part 1, "Four Concepts Toward Understanding Latin America," features chapters: (1) "Ignorance Is at the Root of Problems"; (2) "Endless Poverty"; (3) "The Devaluation of Development"; and (4) "New Meaning of Revolution." Part 2, "Present-Day Latin America: Indicators and Profile," presents the following chapters: (5) "The Ruling Classes of Latin America"; (6) "A Debt Worth Billions"; (7) "Latin America's Ideological Struggle"; (8) "The Population Explosion"; (9) "Urbanization and Population Overflow in Latin America"; (10) "Mass Communications in Latin America"; (11) "The Utopia of Education"; and (12) "Causes of Causes and Incomplete Solutions." Part 3, "Developing Human Potential--a Door Opens Onto Hope," contains chapters: (13) "Education for Living"; (14) "Criteria for Planned Education"; (15) "Achieving Human Potential"; and (16) "A Political Priority." An epilogue, tables of statistical data, and an 81-item bibliography also are included. (DB)
