Overview

Connecting the massive landscapes of North and South America is Mexico and Central America. An area of fascination and study for geographers and other scholars from around the world, these lands and peoples have played important roles in the discoveries and distributions of civilizations, resources, and nations for millennia. These regions have stimulated a large mass of research and publications across the many 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 scholarly publications as possible to help and encourage efforts in the teaching, study, and continuing scholarship of the geography of this area, which covers Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama, as well as the region as a whole.

Beginning with the region as a whole, each chapter that follows, one per nation, is divided by specific sub-disciplines of geography: cultural geography, social geography, economic geography, historical geography, physical and environmental geography, political geography, and urban geography. Each section is then further divided into 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 also included (with these entries’ titles then 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.
