NACLA Report on the Americas is a bimonthly political magazine published by the North American Congress on Latin America.

History[edit]

The North American Congress on Latin America was founded on November 1966 by leaders of the New Left movement to analyze the mainstream media coverage of the Johnson Administration's invasion of the Dominican Republic. In 1967 the NACLA began publishing what was then known as the NACLA Newsletter. Later it adopted the name NACLA's Latin America and Empire Report and in 1977 adopted its present name, NACLA Report on the Americas.

The journal describes itself as "the oldest and most widely read progressive magazine covering Latin America and its relationship with the United States".[1]

Format[edit]

A standard issue begins with several short pieces on Latin American and Caribbean current events followed by a series of longer in-depth articles grouped in a thematic section on a particular topic of Latin American affairs and/or U.S. policy toward the region. Each issue ends with a review section on books related to Latin American and Caribbean political themes.

The magazine is changing from bimonthly to quarterly in 2012.
