Cover Art
Encyclopedia Latina - Ilan Stavans; Harold Augenbraum
Call Number: Terrell Reference E184.S75 E587
ISBN: 071725819X
Publication Date: 2005
In its four volumes, 650 entries, 2000 pages and 1.2 million words, Encyclopedia Latina explores every aspect of Latino life in America from a myriad of perspectives, spanning the arts, media, cuisine, government and politics, science and technology, business, health, and sports, among others. While the collection represents an important cultural point of reference and source of pride for Latino youth, it will also serve the interests of an increasingly diverse American population who can all relate to the themes and stories included in this resource.

 

Reviews

"When reference works are as self-contained yet far-reaching as Grolier's recently released four-volume Encyclopedia Latina: History, Culture, and Society in the United States (LJ 6/15/05), they become much more than repositories of information . . . they can break all sorts of phony stereotypes and lead to some startling discoveries." -- Library Journal

"Encyclopedia Latina: History, Culture, and Society in the United States is an excellent reference source for all facets of Latino history, culture, and civilization" -- Reference & User Services Quarterly
