Overview

South America is an area of fascination and study for geographers and other scholars from around the world, and its land and people have played important roles in the discovery and distribution of civilizations, resources, and nations for millennia. The region has long stimulated a large amount of research across the many subdisciplines of geography, and Thomas A. Rumney collects, organizes, and presents as many scholarly publications as possible in The Geography of South America: A Scholarly Guide and Bibliography. Every South American nation is included: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Surinam, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

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

Editorial Reviews

American Reference Books Annual
This reference gives college-level students and professors a 'one-stop shopping' place to find an exhaustive array of academic publications on the geography of South America. The publication begins with a chapter on the region as a whole followed by individual chapters covering each nation on the continent. Within each chapter resources are identified as general works and then categorized under the subfields of the discipline, such as cultural and social geography, economic geography, historical geography, physical and environmental geography, urban geography, and more. Within each subfield the entries are further classified by atlases, books, monographs, textbooks, book chapters, scholarly articles, master’s theses, and doctoral dissertations. The citations are primarily in English, Spanish, and Portuguese but other languages are included. If you are looking for research on rainfall variation in Chile, the relationship of street cars to popular protests in Rio de Janiero, or the settlement patterns on the Argentine Pampa, then this book is for you.
