Bulletin of Latin American Research Book Series
Series Editors: David Howard, Geoffrey Kantaris, Tony Kapcia, Jasmine Gideon and Lucy Taylor
The Bulletin of Latin American Research Book Series publishes original research of current interest on Latin America, the Caribbean, inter-American relations, and the Latin American Diaspora from all academic disciplines within the social sciences, history, and cultural studies.
Launched in 2008, this series aims to publish research monographs and edited collections that complement the wide scope of the Bulletin itself. It is published and distributed in association with Wiley-Blackwell. We aim to make the series the home of some of the most exciting, innovatory work currently being undertaken on Latin America and we welcome outlines or manuscripts of interdisciplinary, single-authored, jointly-authored or edited volumes.
