Latin America comprises varied biophysical environments and diverse populations living in widely disparate economic circumstances. Endangered Peoples of Latin America: Struggles to Survive and Thrive includes peoples hit hardest by the current globalization trend. Each chapter profiles a specific people or peoples with a cultural overview of their history, subsistence strategies, social and political organization, and religion and world view; threats to their survival; and responses to these threats. A section entitled Food for Thought provides questions that encourage a personal engagement with the experiences of these peoples, and a resource guide suggests further reading and lists films and videos and pertinent organizations and web sites. As the curriculum expands to include more multicultural and indigenous peoples, this unique volume will be valuable to both students and teachers.

Review:

"This volume includes groups not easily found in other sources, such as the Mayans of Central Quintana Roo, the rural people of Mexico's Northwest Coast and the villagers at the edge of Mexico City. Other groups are from Central and South America. The essays are well written and researched, are current, and contain country maps. They are interesting enough for a high school student to read, and they provide an appropriate background when contrasted with other cultures. Recommended."-Blanche Woolls & David Loertscher

..."this textbook format publication provides an intriguing look at specific challenges for cultural survival by different segments of the population in Latin America."-Human Rights Quarterly
