Description of this Book

The editors have put together a solid overview of ten areas of popular culture in Latin America. The contributors have skillfully overcome a variety of research obstacles as well as the imposing problem of dealing with many countries. Each contributor has expertly assembled scientific research, intelligent observations, and well-thought-out conclusions to offer a reliable, sophisticated study of his particular area. Popular music, sports, television, popular religion, comics, photonovels, film, newspapers, cartoons, and festivals and carnivals are covered in this much-needed volume.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Popular culture has only recently been subjected to intense academic interest, but it is an area well worth purusing. This Handbook provides a fine introduction to this important field as it applies to Latin America. The articles all have useful bibliographies, guides to sources, and quick overviews of their subjects. Outstanding are the surveys on comics, popular music, television, photonovels, and single-panel cartoons .... [on] the whole, this is an excellent beginning and is as useful a source for the general reader as for the graduate researcher. -Choice
