Bibliographical essays

This bibliography presents a list of reference materials that are related to aspect of the history, culture and society of Latin America. Ysabel Rennie, The Argentine Republic remains one of the best general introductions to Argentine history and offers an excellent analysis of the years 1943-45. The literature on Uruguay since 1930 is very uneven in its coverage. The 1930s and 1940s in particular have been neglected, and it was not until the crisis years of the 1960s that a substantial literature developed on Uruguay's contemporary situation and recent past. Modern Paraguay begins with the Chaco War, which has been studied by many Paraguayan and Bolivian historians, usually in a polemical fashion. For the history of Chile since the late 1950s, reviews and magazines are an important source of information. The best general political history of Peru, with an excellent bibliography, is D. P. Werlich, Peru: A Short History.
