"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
