Historical Dictionary of Paraguay, Hardback Book

Historical Dictionary of Paraguay Hardback

Part of the Historical Dictionaries of the Americas series


Land-locked Paraguay is one of the smaller nations of Latin America, whose global image is now changing very rapidly.

In the process, the tired stereotype of a "forgotten" country comprising only military dictators, Nazis, and steam trains is being rapidly discarded.

Indeed Paraguay is now no longer off the map and its unique history is attracting growing interest.

This third edition of Historical Dictionary of Paraguay covers its history through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography.

The dictionary section has over 1000 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture.

This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Paraguay.
