Summary
"A Culture of Its Own: Taking Latin America Seriously presents Mark Falcoff's essays on the region. Many of them are contentious; none of them are dull. He ranges from bilingualism to the cult of Garcia Lorea, from U.S. Cuban relations to Chile's curious love affair with Germany. On more than one occasion, Falcoff takes aim at American journalism and scholarship, both of which, he argues, have all too often produced a fantasy version of Latin America which reflects our own national narcissism rather than genuine curiosity about the other. His volume will interest Latin American specialists, diplomats, and journalists as well as those general readers who think they are not interested in Latin America - or who only suspect they might be, but don't know quite where to start."--Jacket
