About this series:
Given the turbulent history of many Central American and Latin American countries, travellers need as much information as they can get in order make the most of a visit. These illustrated titles offer up-to-date coverage of the main historical, economic, political, social and the environmental issues affecting a country. Published by the Latin America Bureau, an independent research group working to broaden public understanding of issues of human rights and social and economic justice in Latin America and the Caribbean.
