Ofrece tambien el trasfondo esencial para cursos sobre literatura y cine. En adicion es una herramienta indispensable para prepararse para el examen de Praxis II de Espanol. La actualizacion de esta sexta edicion, hasta noviembre del 2012, toma en cuenta desde los ultimos descubrimientos sobre las mujeres que acompanaron a Colon en sus viajes, lo que cambia la percepcion del rol jugado por las mismas en la historia de Latinoamerica, hasta la reeleccion de Hugo Chavez en Venezuela para un cuarto periodo y su muerte en marzo del 2013 antes de asumir el nuevo mandato, y los resultados del referendum sobre el estatus territorial de Puerto Rico realizado en el 2012. El Nuevo mapa politico: dos decadas que transformaron Latinoamerica ofrece un completo analisis de la evolucion del panorama geopolitico de la region en las ultimas dos primeras decadas del siglo XXI. No basta con saber que el presidente Chavez fue reelegido y sucedido en las elecciones que siguieron a su muerte por su vicepresidente Nicolas Maduro, mas importante aun es entender las implicaciones que la implementacion del Socialismo Bolivariano del Siglo XXI tiene para Venezuela, para el continente y para el resto del mundo. No basta con saber sobre el movimiento estudiantil chileno de los ultimos anos, mas importante aun es que se conozcan las razones por las cuales se convirtio en una fuerza que dio vuelta al tablero politico chileno. No basta con saber que los hispanos conforman la primera minoria en los Estados Unidos, mas importante aun es conocer su impacto como fuerza politica, demostrado en las eleciones presidenciales del 2012, lo que puede cambiar la situacion para esta poblacion en constante crecimiento. Hoja de ruta es la guia que llevara a los estudiantes a comprender el presente politico y economico latinoamericano al mismo tiempo que les ayudara a aprender un piropo, a utilizar un refran, a preparar un plato tipico, a admirar las diferentes manifestaciones de la cultura, la musica, el cine, las artes, la ciencia y la tecnologia. Pero lo mas importante, ademas de entregarles el conocimiento, les provee los elementos para analizar de manera critica los diferentes aspectos de un continente en constante evolucion.

This compelling account of how Andean Christians have inculturated the Gospel and the challenges that confront them provides a real-world view of the urgent process of inculturation. In the context of pluri-cultural development of the church, this process is one that affirms that both culture and history are transformed by the Spirit of God. Inculturation surveys Andean culture and religious traditions, drawing from day-to-day experience in the transformation of education and social action, personal and communal life, spirituality, and the whole of Christian mission in today's world. It also discusses current evangelization trends worldwide, examining negative as well as positive examples of inculturation, and offers guidelines for future efforts.
