This extensive bibliography of works on American Spanish should prove a useful reference tool. Although not exhaustive, it covers the major works and many minor ones in the field. Organized by country, the book unfortunately lacks an introduction explaining the selection criteria. In spite of these shortcomings, the bibliography is a welcome addition to Latin American reference shelves.
