Summary
"Landlocked Paraguay is one of the smaller nations of Latin America, and its global image is now changing rapidly. In the process, the tired stereotype of a "forgotten" country comprising only military dictators, Nazis, and steam trains is being rapidly discarded. No longer "off the map," Paraguay's unique history is attracting growing interest. This third edition of Historical Dictionary of Paraguay contains a chronology, an introduction, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section as more than 1000 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, as well as aspects of the country's politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent reference for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Paraguay"--Back cover
