Now a standard text on the region, this work provides an up-to-date geographical study of South America. By restricting its scope to this area, the book gives fuller coverage to the countries of the subcontinent than do previous studies that deal with Latin America as a whole. The author draws from a wide range of Spanish, Portuguese, and English sources as well as from first-hand observation. The new enlarged third edition features a reorganization of material into two parts-systematic and regional. This allows for much greater emphasis on systematic geography and reflects the current trend in teaching and research. A new chapter on the important area of politics and territory, and completely rewritten chapters on agriculture and on economic development are included. The third edition also contains many new maps and illustrations.
A very brief introduction to the geography and various regions of South America.
