Pitt Latin American Series
The Pitt Latin American Series began in 1968. Since then the series has grown to include a wide array of distinguished books from a variety of disciplinary, ideological, and methodological perspectives on every aspect of Latin American history, politics, society, economics, and culture. The series continues to thrive as it enters its sixth decade with a renewed sense of purpose.
With a vigorous and wide-ranging list in Latin American studies, the University of Pittsburgh Press looks forward to expanding and deepening its publishing efforts in this vibrant and increasingly important region of the world.
