"The one source that sets reference collections on Latin American studies apart from all other geographic areas of the world.... The Handbook has provided scholars interested in Latin America with a bibliographical source of a quality unavailable to scholars in most other branches of area studies." —Latin American Research Review Beginning with volume 41 (1979), the University of Texas Press became the publisher of the Handbook of Latin American Studies, the most comprehensive annual bibliography in the field. Compiled by the Hispanic Division of the Library of Congress and annotated by a corps of more than 130 specialists in various disciplines, the Handbook alternates from year to year between social sciences and humanities. The Handbook annotates works on Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and the Guianas, Spanish South America, and Brazil, as well as materials covering Latin America as a whole. Most of the subsections are preceded by introductory essays that serve as biannual evaluations of the literature and research under way in specialized areas. The Handbook of Latin American Studies is the oldest continuing reference work in the field. Lawrence Boudon, of the Library of Congress Hispanic Division, has been the editor since 2000, and Katherine D. McCann has been assistant editor since 1999. The subject categories for Volume 60 are as follows: Art History (including ethnohistory) Literature (including translations from the Spanish and Portuguese) Music Philosophy: Latin American Thought

South America is a region that enjoys an unusually high profile as the origin of some of the world’s greatest writers and most celebrated footballers. This is the first book to undertake a systematic study of the relationship between football and literature across South America. Beginning with the first football poem published in 1899, it surveys a range of texts that address key issues in the region’s social and political history. Drawing on a substantial corpus of short stories, novels and poems, each chapter considers the shifting relationship between football and literature in South America across more than a century of writing. The way in which authors combine football and literature to challenge the dominant narratives of their time suggests that this sport can be seen as a recurring theme through which matters of identity, nationhood, race, gender, violence, politics and aesthetics are played out. This book is fascinating reading for any student, scholar or serious fan of football, as well as for all those interested in the relationship between sports history, literature and society.

In a fascinating story of 220 pages, through a selection of more than 300 images from 65 archives in America, Europe and Asia; the Mexican Football Federation and Cooperativa La Joplin celebrate, in an unprecedented and playful way, one of the great contributions of Mexico to all humanity: the ball. The first half of the book covers the remote origin of this claim, the symbolism and myth, the culture and art in Mesoamerica to answer all of the questions that may arise for those familiar and unfamiliar with the subject. The second part responds to the immediate question: what about the other balls? These are mainly in Asia and Europe. And the third narrates the evolution of the most popular ball of humanity: the football. And amidst all of this there is a convergence of childhood, math, humor, presidents and passion… Through an investigation of two years, this book celebrates one of the most influential objects in the culture of man, and of course, one of the greatest Mexican legacies. And beyond a history that provides much pride, it entails an ancient sense of joy and fun. Endearing brotherhood: culture and sport.
