From afar, Latin America looks like a blurry tableau: devoid of defining lines, particularities and nuances. Little is understood about the idiosyncrasies of Latin-Americans, their cultural identity and social values. Differences between Brazilians and Spanish Americans, or amid the diverse Spanish American countries, are not sufficiently understood. Even less is known about the amplitude of the Iberian heritage of such countries, or about the miscegenation and acculturation processes that took place among their different constitutive races. There is no clarity regarding the Western nature of Latin America or about its cultural affinities with Latin Europe. Nor is there sufficient understanding of the links between the Latin population of the United States and the inhabitants of Latin America.
This book’s aims to fill the gap by focusing on Latin America’s history, culture, identity and idiosyncrasies. It serves as a guide to understand regional attitudes, meanings and behavioural differences of the region. It also analyses the present economic situation of Latin America, while trying to predict the future of the region. Written in a simple and accessible manner, this book will be of interest to readers keen on exploring Latin America for potential opportunities in trade, investment or any other kind of business and cultural endeavour.
This is one of the very few books on Latin America that serves as a guide for those seeking potential trade and business opportunities in Latin America.
