A carefully devised, methodical guide to present-day research entities and libraries with Latin American interests, and their personnel, for the German Federal Republic and West Berlin. Most useful is the list of published works of each person, made especially accessible by careful indexing. The guide is made accessible to people who know no German by an ingenious system of parallel translation into Spanish that covers all but the subject index.
