Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

It is a land sown with dreams and plowed with nightmares. It shelters the imaginary horizons of the explorers, the conquerors, the missionaries. The real Latin America is coupled with the mythical Latin America and, everywhere, legends cloud the issues. A blend of cultures, religions, language and histories, Latin America is a fascinating continent. A source of both pleasure and knowledge, this richly illustrated volume goes to the common sources and links all of these regions through quotations from historical heroes, cultural icons and literary greats. Comprising more than twenty different countries, each with its own distinct and intense flavor, Latin America embodies a cultural richness that has long exerted a mysterious allure over the rest of the world. This insightful volume draws on music, literature and art to explore the complexities of these countries. From the Buenos Aires of Jorge Luis Borges to the infinite spaces of Pablo Neruda, from the tango and bossa nova to the Buena Vista Social Club, from the Virgin of Guadalupe to Frida Kahlo or Eva Peron, America Latina paints a compelling portrait of the region's soul. The exuberant spirit of Latin America bursts forth from every page of this lavish volume.
