This major new reference surveys political parties of importance in the Americas since 1980, with the exclusion of the United States. This one-volume work is part of The Greenwood Historical Encyclopedia of the World's Political Parties and has been fashioned both to update Robert J. Alexander's prize-winning two-volume set published in 1982, Political Parties of the Americas, and to serve as an analysis of political development and political parties in the Western Hemisphere during the last decade, an encyclopedia that can stand on its own. Like other works in this series, this volume edited by Charles D. Ameringer is intended for college, university, institutional, and public libraries. Following a brief introduction giving some general historical background, chapters on 49 countries in North and South America and in the Caribbean are arranged alphabetically. These chapters provide some historical information, short bibliographies, and then describe political parties and current developments of note. Parties are arranged alphabetically by their English names or translations. Internal cross-references and a full index make the volume easily accessible to researchers in different fields. A chronology points to dates of importance.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Editor Ameringer has done scholars and researchers generally a fine service to bring out this massive one-volume reference volume, which is a sequel to Robert J. Alexander's two-volume edition, Political Parties of the Americas. . . . Especially useful for researchers, these commentaries add to the political information in the preceeding historical narratives, and readers can refer back to the original Alexander volumes to obtain more detailed information on the historical parties. The consistent format of the country chapters enhances the utlity of this authoritative reference work. Highly recommended for all reference collections."-Library Journal
"The book employs extensive cross-references in both the index and text, leading readers from party name acronym or foreign language name to full English name. A useful addition to most academic libraries whether or not the base set is owned."-Choice
