21 LUSTIG, NORA Mexico, the remaking of an economy. Second edition.
Washington, Brookings Institution, 1998 0815753195 / 9780815753193 Soft Cover 
287 pages, diagrams, charts, tables, wrappers, very good. In this book, Nora Lustig analyzes Mexico's economic evolution from the outset of the debt crisis in 1982 until the sweeping reforms began to bear fruit in the early 1990s. She explains the causes of the 1982 economic crisis and why it took Mexico "so long" to restore stability and growth. She also explores the question of the social costs of economic crisis and adjustment, and why the process may have been easier for Mexico than other debt-ridden countries. A discussion of the emerging role of the state in Mexico and the country's new outward-oriented development strategy is followed by an analysis of its search for greater economic integration with the United States and Canada.

26 SEARBY, ELLEN The Costa Rica Traveler : Getting Around in Costa Rica
Juneau, AK Windham Bay Press 1985 Soft Cover 
208 pages, well illustrated, folding map, pictorial wrappers, very good. Second printing. From the foreword: Before I vacationed in Costa Rica the first time, a U.S. friend described it as 'the most hassle-free foreign travel you'll ever do.' Even with almost no Spanish, except numbers, I found she was right. People helped any time they could think of a way to do so. They've met enough travelers to know what we want and have kept their considerate nature without becoming cynical. Meeting the Costa Ricans is as much a privilege as traveling in the beauty of their country.

27 SULLIVAN, PAUL Unfinished conversations: Mayas and foreigners between two wars.
New York Alfred A. Knopf, 1989 0394578031 / 9780394578033 Hard Cover Good in Good dust jacket 
269 pages, illustrations, map, cloth, dj, ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. From the publisher: A century ago, European and North American archeologists first came upon the extraordinary ruins of Chichen Itza and Tulum - and started to converse with the Mayas who inhabited the forests of the Yucatan. In this thought-provoking history of a century-long 'unfinished conversation' between the indigenous Indians and the white intruders, Paul Sullivan shows how each party to the dialogue shaped the cross-cultural encounters to their own ends.

New York American Museum of Natural History 1935 Soft Cover Very Good 
Guide leaflet series No. 88. The American Museum of Natural History. 102 pages, well illustrated, wrappers, very good. Second printing. From the preface: The seven articles grouped in this pamphlet are reprinted from Natural History. The last six appeared successively as a connected series on the art of pre-Columbia Central America. The first paper, the Worshippers of the Aztec War Gods, came out earlier and has been included to give a glimpse of the physical and social background against which these arts flourished. The purpose is to provide examples of the extraordinary range of Central American art forms, which are too often buried in technical publications inaccessible to the general public.
