I read ’em my way….

20 June 2013

If you’ve notice, of late I have been writing less on national politics, preferring to look at the odd local item, and try to get back to writing on history.  Besides, when I started this site back in 2002, there just wasn’t much available in the way of resources in English on Mexican and Latin American political culture outside of wonkish and academic circles.

Given my own limitations, I’ve pretty much given up on keeping some parts of this site up to date (like the resources page), but did add a list of those site — mostly alternative news sources, mostly in English.   Though I no longer have the time to plow through everything,  these are the sites related to Latin America that I have on my “wordpress reader” which I have also listed on my resources page:


Americas North and South:  A Look at History and Issues from Tierra del Fuego to the Arctic.

Bolivia Diary:  information in English on current news in Bolivia.
