Description - The South America Handbook by Patrick Heenan
Each volume in the Regional Handbooks of Economic Development series examines key issues affecting the economic growth of developing regions in Asia, Europe and South America. The series is designed to help the general reader understand a variety of complex factors - social, political and economic - that will bear on a region's economic growth as it moves into the 21st century. Each volume begins with an explanation of the region's economic conditions within an historical and political context. Then follow approximately 20 chapter-length essays, each prepared by a recognized expert in the field, analyzing such factors as a region's population, natural resources, foreign trade, banking and financial structure, as well as the role of multi-national corporations, the problems of labour and economic inequalities in the region, etc. A primary aim of this series is to provide an overview of regional economic development by viewing countries within their larger domestic and international contexts, focusing on the relations among regions as crucial to their meeting the challenges of the 21st century.
In addition, a series of appendices that include a detailed chronology of events in the region, a glossary of terms, biographical entries on key personalities, an annotated bibliography of further reading, and an index close each volume.
