Historical Dictionary of Paraguay

By R. Andrew Nickson

Despite its fascinating history, Paraguay remains one of the least known countries in South America. This almost completely revised and updated edition of the 1973 original by Charles Kolinski provides a comprehensive survey of the political and academic history of the country. Over 1,600 entries (and over 500 cross-references) are included, ranging from precolonial times right through to the aftermath of the 1989 overthrow of President Stroessner. An extensive bibliography provides 540 citations, divided into 21 subject classifications. Intended as the definitive reference book on Paraguayan history, this should be of special interest to public and university libraries, as well as to Latin Americanists.
