The crisis in Central America and the Caribbean has led to an increased number of books, articles, and studies on Latin America. The role of the United States in Latin America, both in history and at the present time, is receiving new attention and examination. Renewed interest in the foreign policies of Latin American countries and in democracy and redemocratization is reflected in the literature. This comprehensive reference is intended as a sequel to two previously published works: Latin America, 1967-1979: Social Science Information Sources and Latin America, 1979-1983: A Social Science Bibliography. It contains titles of books, monographs, articles, and chapters that have been published through 1987, and it provides up-to-date and in-depth listings of available materials on Latin America. This expansive work will prove especially useful for university and college faculties as well as for librarians who provide guidance to students researching Latin America.
