Item description for Latin America: History and Culture Edition 1. by Barbara A. Tenenbaum...

North Americans know that their "New World" is only part of what Columbus discovered in 1492. In this 4-vol. set, in appealing form, is the story of the other Americas -- the borderlands of Old (and New) Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America. Derived from Scribner's "Encyclopedia of Latin American History and Culture," yet enriched with new art and current events, this set introduces students to a world as familiar as Christopher Columbus and our Latino heritage, as foreign as the jungles of the Amazon and ancient citadel of Machu Picchu. Here are the beauty of Haitian folk art and the beat of Brazil's bossa nova-along with the brutality of Salvadoran death squads and Argentine "disappearances." In A-Z format, 749 articles are complemented by 60 color and more than 200 black-and-white pictures and maps. Boxed special features, topical and general chronologies, and marginal definitions are some of the aids that make this set appropriate for every school and public library.
