Details

The second largest country in South America, Argentina sits in southern South America between Chile and Uruguay. Possessing a myriad of landscapes, Argentina contains the rich plains of the Pampas, the flat to rolling plateau of Patagonia, and the rugged Andes mountain range. Following independence from Spain in 1816, Argentina experienced several periods of internal political conflict before democracy returned in 1983. Since then numerous elections have verified Argentina's progress towards becoming a stable democracy.

Argentina offers a highly readable, up-to-date survey of this South American country. Engaging chapters examine Argentina's physical geography, resources, work and leisure, environment, issues related to its future, and more. Case studies call out important details, and numerous full-color photographs, illustrations, and maps bring the information to life. A glossary of key terms and a listing of books and websites to consult for additional information further enhance this informative guide.
