Overview

Connecting the massive landscapes of North and South America are Mexico and Central America. An area of fascination and study for geographers and scholars from around the world, for millennia these lands and people have played important roles in the discoveries and distributions of civilizations, resources, and nations. These regions have stimulated a large amount of research and publications across the sub-disciplines of geography. The Geography of Central America and Mexico: A Scholarly Guide and Bibliography by Thomas A. Rumney collects, organizes, and presents as many of these publications as possible to encourage efforts in the teaching, study, and continuing scholarship of the geography of this area, which includes Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama.

Beginning with the region as a whole, each chapter that follows—one per nation—is divided by the specific sub-disciplines of geography: cultural, social, economic, historical, physical and environmental, political, and urban. Each section is further divided by document type: atlases, books, book chapters, articles from scholarly journals, master’s theses, and doctoral dissertations. Although the majority of entries recorded focus on English-language works, selected entries written in Spanish, as well as French, German, and other languages, are included (with entries’ titles translated into English and noted accordingly).

Editorial Reviews

American Reference Books Annual
This comprehensive bibliography collection covers the scholarly historical and current titles of the geography of Central America and Mexico. The beginning chapter is a bibliography of the Mexico and Latin American region. The following chapters are about the specific countries in this region. The counties are Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Panama. Each country's information is covered by atlases, books, monographs, chapters, scholarly articles, dissertations, and theses, under the subtitles of cultural and social geography, economic geography, historical geography, and urban geography. The dates for coverage begin as early as possible through current titles. There is an author index and a list of periodicals used in this bibliography. This geographical bibliography is organized for easy reference, and I would highly recommend this bibliography for academic collections.
