This fourth edition of 528 pp is updated as of June 30, 2008 and enhanced with pictures, maps and graphics. Written in a student friendly style, Hoja de ruta fourth edition includes the new developments in Latin American politics such as the new left governments in Guatemala and Paraguay, the elections of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner in Argentina, currently, the second woman president in Latin America, and of Raúl Castro in Cuba; Brasil's projection as a world power with the discoveries of oil; new developments of the FARC in Colombia; new archeological discoveries on how the Americas were populated; Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize. In addition, it features a new chapter on the reality of the GLBT population in Latin America. Recommended as "the most engaging textbook of its kind in the market" for introducing the students, not only to a historical overview of Latin America, but most prominently, to an array of current topics of interest that range from politics to how to prepare delicious ethnic plates; from history to the role of women in the shaping of Latin American societies; from literature to reguetón; from art or religion to the use of flirtatious remarks. The fifteen chapters of the book follow a skillful, didactic strategy: the "hoja de ruta" or roadmap of the chapter; a self-evaluation, "¿Cuánto sabemos?", of their knowledge on the topic; the chapter itself; a review guide with questions and puzzles, "¿Cuánto sabemos ahora?"; and finally, topics to think about, research, write and discuss. Hoja de ruta transforms the classroom in a lively forum that will prepare the students with a deep understanding of current societies in this always changing continent which is Latin America. Updated every two years. When adopted, the instructor receives a CD containing a bank of images, maps and around 100 links to be used along with the book, plus three e-newsletters per semester with a summary of the most significant events.
