Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is a very timely, well thought out, pedagogically savvy, and articulately presented introductory reader to Latin American thought . ... I think that Nuccetelli and Seay have developed a wonderfully useful book." — Eduardo Mendieta, SUNY at Stony Brook




"This is really excellent, and will be a wonderful, unique, very useful, and timely contribution. It is broad in scope, but well-organized and helpfully focused on topics of interest today. ... There is no book that even approximates the scope or usefulness of this collection." — Linda Martin Alcoff, Syracuse University
