This series, modeled after Gale's successful Contemporary Black Biography
series, contains biographical entries on notable Hispanics/Latinos from a variety of fields -- from art, music and literature to science, politics and business. Emphasis is placed on active figures, but Contemporary Hispanic Biography
also includes entries on the significant figures from the 20th century. Each volume includes approximately 65 detailed entries. Entries include a photograph (as available), a narrative biography of the entrant's personal and professional life, and a list of further reading sources. Contemporary Hispanic Biography
covers significant persons who originate in Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Spain or the Spanish-speaking countries of Central and South America, and also Brazil. Volumes include cumulative nationality, occupation, subject and name indexes.
