9781442246812: Placing Latin America: Contemporary Themes in Geography

Placing Latin America offers a thematic approach to the study of the diverse geographies of a globalizing region. This comprehensive text focuses on the dynamic connections among people, places, and environments rather than on predefined notions about the region. The book’s well-rounded and accessible analysis includes discussions of borders and migration, transnationalism and globalization, urbanization and landscapes of cities, the connections between economic development and political change, the physical environment and human-environment interactions, and natural resources in the context of a global economy. The authors also explore social and cultural themes such as the illegal drug trade, social movements, tourism, and children and young people. Providing a nuanced and clear perspective, this book will be an invaluable guide for all those interested in the politics, economy, and society of a rapidly changing continent.
With contributions by: Fernando J. Bosco, Christian Brannstrom, J. Christopher Brown, Altha J. Cravey, James J. Hayes, Edward L. Jackiewicz, Thomas Klak, Araceli Masterson-Algar, Kent Mathewson, Sarah A. Moore, Linda Quiquivix, Zia Salim, Kate Swanson, Benjamin Timms, and Joseph Wiltberger.

About the Author:

Edward L. Jackiewicz is professor in the Department of Geography at California State University, Northridge. Fernando J. Bosco is professor in the Department of Geography at San Diego State University.

Review:

Numerous respected Latin Americanist geographers tackle a wide range of current issues in this timely book, now in an updated third edition. Many of the chapters discuss the failures of neoliberalism and modernization and highlight the role of new social movements and political regimes in contesting orthodoxies of globalization. China’s growing influence and environmental issues also receive attention. Essays on such newsworthy topics as migration, Latinos in the United States, border issues, drugs, and natural resources should engage the attention of students. This is a valuable and welcome addition to the textbook literature. (Gregory Knapp, The University of Texas at Austin)

Finally! We now have a text on Latin America that we can use in our Geography of Latin America classes without having to resort to texts of the past that covered each region or country in the repetitive fashion of ‘physical landscapes, history, and culture.’ Rather, Jackiewicz and Bosco bring together a collection of essays on topics that dominate Latin America today. After grounded and necessary chapters on history and the physical geography of the region, the authors lead us into what is taking place in Latin America today, from the drug trade and control of natural resources to timely exploration of urban issues and human migration throughout the Americas. I cannot wait to introduce my students to Latin America through the lens of these authors. Thank you. (Matthew Taylor, University of Denver)
