"The Paraguay Reader will become the most obvious starting point for both Latin Americanists and non-specialists wanting to learn about Paraguay, one of the least known, studied, or understood countries in South America. This anthology gives readers access, for the first time, to a well-chosen selection of texts representing the country's history, culture, and politics. The materials are impeccably organized, and the introductions are clear, informative, and thought-provoking." - Will Fowler, author of Latin America since 1780 "This book fills an enormous gap in knowledge about Paraguay and will be a standard reference on the country for many years to come."--Ticio Escobar, Minister of Culture, Paraguay, August 15, 2008, to June 22, 2012 "Many of the accounts are being made accessible in English for the first time and thus provide an invaluable resource on the subjects treated, one that has no parallel in the current literature. All of the accounts are preceded by introductions that prepare the reader for the historical significance of the piece." - Leonard Rinchiuso, Journal of Latin American Geography
