50th Anniversary Issue, Brazil Syllabus, the Migrant Caravan, and more!


Dear Naclistas,


If you haven't seen it already, our 50th anniversary issue is now in print, as well as available online open-access through the end of November!


As we complete our 50th year of research, publication, and activism, we look back in this issue of the NACLA Report to where we have been, how we got there, and some of the challenges—and opportunities—that lie ahead. This issue captures NACLA's expansive breadth and depth of coverage over five decades. The issue attempts to fit 50 years of history into a single volume, following flashpoints in Latin American history and politics over the past five decades, and NACLA's coverage of them.


On the web in the past few weeks, we've highlighted several excerpts from the special anniversary issue, including the Editors' Introduction, as well as Greg Grandin's reflections on how NACLA's 1979 coverage of the rise of right-wing military dictatorships is just as valuable today as it was almost four decades ago. Keep your eyes peeled to read more pieces from the issue posted on our website in coming weeks.

Plus, don't miss our syllabus compiling our recent coverage on Brazilian politics in the wake of Jair Bolsonaro's devastating win in the recent elections. It's a valuable resource as we confront the coming challenges to justice and democracy in the country. 


Thanks for reading!
