?This is in many ways a companion volume to Political Parties of the Americas. It includes over 450 biographical sketches of the most important political figures in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in Latin America and the Caribbean.' Political involvement and significance are emphasized for each subject with details also presented for some on family background, education, and non-political activities. Entries are arranged alphabetically by name with an index listing entries by country or territory. A bibliography listing one to five sources concludes each entry. Recommended for libraries supporting research on Latin American history.?-Reference Book Review
