Latin American Studies Titles


This directory of titles addresses the growing interest in art history at universities and higher education institutions.

Latin American Studies seeks to establish itself as a venue for the publication of high-quality monographs and edited volumes on Latin American societies, their economies, polities, and cultures. Particular attention is paid to literary and human issues, and to books that contribute to innovation and debate in Latin America.

The Latin American Studies publishing programme includes the Sussex/CILAS series, titled Sussex Latin American Studies, chaired by Prof. Carlos H. Waisman, Department of Sociology and International Studies Program, University of California, San Diego. Books are published in this series with the sponsorship of the Center for Iberian and Latin American Studies (CILAS) at the University of California, San Diego. The series is refereed by distinguished scholars in the field, and is a vehicle for the dissemination of research carried out at CILAS.
