Scholarly Titles and College Textbooks

Besides working extensively with indexes in Spanish (and being on the cutting edge of high standards in that area; see writings cited on the Spanish Language Indexes page), we are also pleased to draw on our expertise in Latin American history, anthropology, and sociology to prepare indexes for a variety of works in the humanities and social science areas. As well, our firsthand experience in higher education gives us a depth of background to work with a variety of college textbooks in both English and Spanish.


Editors of Latin American books prefer to work with us because of attention to detail and the subject and linguistic knowledge to know when a term or name is not used correctly. And knowing when accent marks are used comes in very handy as a final quality control check. Canadian edition spellings are also subject to strict quality control.


Following is a selected list of the scholarly and trade press titles relevant to Latin American themes, followed by a brief list of college textbooks indexed in recent years. The list includes a number of titles in criminal justice.
