Editors: Lara Naciamento and Gustavo Sousa
Book Description:
In recent decades, many changes have taken place in Latin America as a result of economic, social and security developments. Increases in inequality and poverty continue to be major problems. As a result of social inequality, there have been increases in crime and violence as well. This book focuses on these recent changes that have taken place in Latin America, as well as the many cultural and linguistic challenges that exist in the bilingual community. The health-care system in the region is also discussed, as well as some of the major health issues that the community is presently facing.
