Este texto es un buen recurso para el maestro de una clase de cultura y historia Latinoámericana pero no lo puedo recomendar para los estudiantes porque es muy lento de leer y denso en números estadísticos.
Some professors may find that Latinoamérica: Presente y Pasado by Arturo A. Fox is an adequate textbook to teach Latin American Civilization and Culture courses if they can overlook the typogragical errors like the one that asserts that Macchu Picchu is at "2.000 pies de altura", or "2,000 feet of altitude", or the personal intrusions of the author into his text, or worse, the careless use of expressions like "desaparecido", especially when discussing Argentinian authors such as Manuel Puig. For example, "el argentino Manuel Puig (1939 - 1990); prematuramente desaparecido,(...)." Such careless use of "disappeared", especially in the context of Argentina is simply unforgiveable calling on professors teaching the course and the textbook, as it does, to constantly correct the errors or the oversights in the book.
This book really becomes unacceptable when Prof. Fox addresses Cuba. He lets his own biography and personal antagonism toward Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution completely color his presentation of Cuba since the Revolution, asserting untruths and ignoring the historical record.

At the end of the semester,this book is going directly into the trash.
I purchased this book for a culture class.
I covers a lot of material but well written and easy to read. It's a good reference book.
interactive man
It arrived earlier than expected, well ahead of the date I needed it, and was in perfect condition. Unfortunately, I had to return it after the instructor announced that she's using the fourth edition.
great book not selling it back when i finished with it!
I mean, I get that used books have markings and maybe even missing pages, but you're missing the entire two first chapters. That's not cool.
Decent Spanish history book. Not much difference between this edition and the fourth. It is an easy read for a beginning Spanish student and I'd say that the reading is fairly interesting
It was exactly what I expected and it came before the expected arrival date. I was very happy with my purchase.
