Suggestions for Further Reading
There is growing interest in Paraguay among scholarly writers and journal-
ists. If you are interested in a more in-depth understanding of the country,
here is a list of books that are not cited directly in extracts that we chose for
the Reader. However, some of them contain outstanding analysis and are
well worth reading for both general and speciﬁc information. We have not
listed articles, academic or otherwise, or chapters from edited books, simply
due to the overwhelming number available. If one exists, we list the English
translation of books ﬁrst published in Spanish, although we encourage read-
ers to consult the original if possible.
