About Secret History

Commentary on Latin America.
Mostly about Mexico - but not always.
Designed to encourage readers to learn about
the apparently "secret history" of 500 million people
spread across two continents
- but not always.
You can always count on a little snark.

Islam En Las Americas

A former grad school acquaintance of mine recently wrapped up a major grant project on Islam in the Americas. She is a specialist in Syria, but hails from Spain, so I have no fears on the language gymnastics needed for the project. She and her crew have put together an excellent web site on the topic. http://www.islamamericas.com/ Islam En Las Americas. I am excited to see it is an active forum in both English and Spanish and that there are items on topics such as Islam in the border regions of Paraguay and Brazil. This is a very exciting project and a good example of the positive work that can come about with some invested money and time.
