From the current issue of the Harvard University Gazette:
Harvard University announced Monday (May 15) that David Rockefeller, a member of the Harvard College Class of 1936 and longtime benefactor, has increased to $25 million his endowment gift to support Harvard's Latin American studies center. The new gift of an additional $10 million to the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies will support the center's research, teaching, and publishing activities, and will provide increased funding for undergraduate and graduate students who study Latin America and travel to the region.
Since 1998, the Rockefeller Center has produced a steady stream of books on Latin America, including a revised and updated edition of the 1982 classic Bitter Fruit: The Story of the American Coup in Guatemala, which remains the standard account of the CIA-backed overthrow of Guatemalan president Jacobo Arbenz. Other highlights include Titu Cusi: A 16th Century Account of the Conquest, an account of the Spanish conquest of the Inca that dates to 1570, and Passing Lines: Sexuality and Immigration, a work in which fifteen leading scholars examine the role sexuality plays in immigration. See the Rockefeller Center website for a full list of publications, all of which are available through HUP.
