Overview

A standard text in Latin American culture courses, this unique collection of diverse readings and exclusive interviews focuses on the dynamic tension between tradition and change in contemporary Latin American culture from the Caribbean to Central and South America, including Brazil. The thematic approach of Tradición y cambio highlights key issues in Latin American culture; the selections explore how those issues (such as urbanization or the changing role of the family) alter, enrich, or confound the traditional cultural values and institutions.
