from a reader...
"Fodor's "South America" is a comprehensive guide to all 10 countries of that continent, which concentrates on cities and major attractions, in 653 pages. It is arranged logically and uniformly, with an index and table of contents that make it easy to locate information.

The yellow-tabbed pages upfront contain smart travel tips for South America in general, and the book is then divided alphabetically by country, with sections dedicated to 2-7 of each country's major cities and regions. Although it is a good guide for large cities and major tourist sites, it deals with outlying areas with a broad brush, if at all."

from a reader...
"I read every guidebook I could find before visiting Argentina with my family two years ago and then moving here for a year last July. This is by far the most complete guide I've seen, with lots of helpful, realistic information about where to go, what to do (and what not to do) and where to stay all over this country -- not just in Buenos Aires. Even after living here for months we still pull it out from time to time."

Fodor's Pocket Guide - Buenos Aires
from a reader...
"At some expense, our entire family from San Francisco, Tulsa and Chicago is traveling to BA on a toot because we've never been there. Based on this book's recommendations, we have made our reservations and plans accordingly. Our Chicago newspaper reporter son checked out everything, and tells us the book's information is true, correct and very useful... We have carved out all of our 8-day doings schedule from the Fodor's recommendations..."

From Library Journal
Buenos Aires is more difficult to capture, yet Wilson (Latin American and Spanish literature, University Coll., London) succeeds admirably. Unlike Oxford, Buenos Aires is organized geographically, but the underlying cultural themes are evident: Jorge Luis Borges, Julio Cortazar, and the European literary tradition; tango, the music of longing and despair, machismo, and sensuality; the cult of Evita Peron; the life-and-death importance of soccer; totalitarian politics; and the Disappeared. The geographic references in the text help convey a sense of place as well as history and culture. Well referenced and indexed, both titles are highly recommended for academic and large public libraries.
