World Scientific Publishing is pleased to invite you to the book launch of Understanding Latin America: A Decoding Guide, the new book by Alfredo Toro Hardy; career diplomat, former Ambassador to the UK, US, Spain, Brazil and others, and two-time winner of the Latino Book Award. 

From afar, Latin America looks like a blurry tableau: devoid of defining lines, particularities and nuances. This book aims to fill the gaps by focusing on Latin America's history, culture, identity and idiosyncrasies and serves as a guide to understand regional attitudes, meanings and behavioural differences of the region. Written in a simple and accessible manner, it also analyses the present economic situation of Latin America, while trying to predict the future of the region. 

The event will be opened by speakers Dr Laurence Whitehead (Nuffield College, Oxford) and Dr Charles Jones (Former Director of the Centre of Latin American Studies and former Assistant Director of the Centre of International Studies, Cambridge), after which Alfredo Toro Hardy will speak. 

Tea and coffee reception will then follow.

If you are interested in attending, please contact Rebecca Fletcher.
