KIRKUS REVIEW

After introductory chapters which explain the ancient settlement of South America by various tribes and then their conquest by Spanish speaking invaders, the author goes on to take each country in a chapter-by-chapter approach, outlining the history, development and the present status of affairs in each of the countries collectively referred to as Latin America. Mr. Worcester is always brief, but organized in such a way as to render his major points memorable and he beats a pathway through the intricate Spanish names and tempestuous politics to achieve a memorable hole. It is an excellent book to begin on and would not be out of place on adult reading lists for easily absorbed quick-to-read background on our hemispheric hot-pots.
