Latin American urban historians are solicited to write 2500-word essays on historical urban development in Mexico and South America from 1815-present. Authors are also needed to write shorter (150-1000 word) essays on specific cities. Highest priority is for Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, but many smaller cities in Brazil, Mexico, and elsewhere in Central and South America are also open. Essay deadlines are somewhat negotiable, but December 31, 2005 is a good target date. The essays will be published in a new three-volume reference work: The City and Urban Life, edited by Jan Rogozinski and published by M. E. Sharpe. Additional information is available from G. Elbow at the address in this announcement or on line at http://web.bsu.edu/perera/iphs/CityNUrbanLife.htm.
