The UCLA Latin American Institute was established in 1959 to coordinate research, instructional, and public service programs related to Latin America. In keeping with its research mission, the Institute undertook a scholarly publishing program to make available the results of original research of the highest quality. The Institute issued its first title in 1965 and supports and complements the Institute's research function by publishing statistical and bibliographic reference works, an interdisciplinary journal, and scholarly books on Latin America.
