"Kent provides a refreshingly new perspective on a complex and fascinating region. This is a great text for teaching Latin American geography, with lots of informative pictures, data tables, and maps that help to bring this complex environment sharply into focus. With discussions of such important issues as globalization, environmental change, and cultural continuity, students will enjoy the book's easy-to-read approach and crisp visual imagery. Highly recommended!"--David J. Keeling, Department of Geography and Geology, Western Kentucky University
"This book offers a well-crafted blend of topics and themes that serves as a nicely seasoned introduction to the geographical diversity of Latin America. The many regional vignettes in the book add ample spice to the comprehensive coverage of the people, places, and environment of this important world region."--Karl Zimmerer, Department of Geography and Institute for Environmental Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"This book is suffused with Kent’s passion for and deep knowledge of Latin America, born out of his 30 years of work, research, and travel in the area. It covers an immense range in terms of both the regions and the topics addressed, making it an excellent teaching text and reference. The book will support a wide range of teaching options, but will be particularly helpful for introductory courses on Latin America. The writing style will help stir interest even among those students unconvinced of the virtues of engaging deeply with this fascinating, wonderful, and perplexing part of the world. This is a book many of us will want on our shelves as a source for those pieces of information so often needed in our research but rarely at our fingertips."--Anthony Bebbington, School of Environment and Development, University of Manchester, UK
