Throughout Latin America, European cultures have influenced things such as language, religion, and architecture. Seems incredible to read this book from Mintz, the master of Caribbean studies, and one of the few anthropologists to do fieldwork in former Spanish, French, and English colonies. These countries make up the Central American and Caribbean Confederation (CONCENCABA). Secondly, the Assistant Secretary of Foreign Affairs at the State Department, Rafael Juarbe, presented the Initiative Somos País, that intends to bring together nongovernmental organizations from all over Puerto Rico and to facilitate governmental services and assistance to third sector initiatives.

Even though tourism has become a vital economic component of the Caribbean Basin, in the long term, tourism creates many problems. The cities of Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Sao Paulo encompass an industrial area that, were it independent of Brazil, would rank as the world�s 8th largest economy.� Roughly 30% of Brazil�s GNP is generated in Sao Paulo alone and it is the center of Brazil�s information and telecommunications sector.� Rio de Janeiro remains an important tourist destination as former capital city of Brazil and as the home of Carnival, a major festival highlighting African cultural influences in music, dance and religious ritual.� Like the barrios in central Mexico, favelas (poor neighborhoods around major cities) in Brazil suffer from insufficient electricity, clean water and sanitation services.

Latin American liberation theology, which has had to wage a philosophical battle with the Catholic Church for decades in order to justify its social activism, has never taken solid root in Puerto Rico (Silva).
