The Land and People of Argentina

by Geoffrey E. Fox

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-- This detailed and in-depth book is more than an introduction to the turbulent development and history of the large South American country, which spans mountains, jungles, prairies, and deserts. Aspects of the culture such as unique Argentine traditions and linguistic nuances are given separate treatment through digressions set aside from the standard text. The current political situation and struggles of the president, Carlos Menem, and his attempts to bring the country through its economic crisis are also covered in detail. The black-and-white photographs have a somewhat grainy quality. An extensive annotated bibliography is appended, as are a discography (for listening to Argentina's unique musical contribution, the tango) and a detailed index. --Frances E. Millhouser, Reston Regional Library, VA
