CEDLA Latin America Studies (CLAS) book series

The CLAS book series consists of more than 100 titles and has, through the years, made a considerable contribution to the publication and distribution of social science and historiographical research by Latin Americanists in Europe and the Americas. The CLAS series consists of monographs and readers in English.


The objective of the CLAS series is to publish the results of original research on Latin America in the fields of the social sciences, understood in a broad sense, including history, economy and geography. The series is directed toward an academic readership, but also aims to reach a larger public of students and informed readers.
