Tradición y cambio: Lecturas sobre la cultura latinoamericana contemporánea
By Heyck, Denis Lynn Daly and González-Pagani, María Victoria
Tradición y cambio is one of the standard texts used in Latin American culture courses. This unique collection of diverse readings and exclusive interviews focuses on the dynamic tension between tradition and change in contemporary Latin American culture -- from the Caribbean to Central and South America, including Brazil. The thematic approach of Tradici"n y cambio identifies key issues in Latin American culture and uses the readings to ask how those issues, such as urbanization or the changing role of the family -- alter, enrich, or confound the traditional cultural values and instititions.
