New Latin American Studies Books at Doe Library.

I wanted to highlight some of our recent purchases of several noteworthy books at the Doe Library. I am trying to strike a balance between the budgetary constraints, the faculty needs and some thoughts on a future vision about the Latin American collections at the Doe Library. The future of the Caribbean and Latin American collections should operate on the principles of outreach to the scholars and efficiency building.

The first noteworthy acquisition is that of a very interesting limited edition book as highlighted below.
