For this edition, the chapters of historical and cultural contexts have been removed entirely, replaced by a vague reference to online material. Coverage is still good, and is generally comprehensive. There aren't going to be many places on this vast continent that this guide doesn't cover. As you might expect, the major tourist draws get the most attention, so this is not really an "off the beaten track" guide. The recommended itineraries in the front are well designed, provided you have at least a month to dedicate to your travel. Actually, the guide frequently mentions the fact that a real comprehensive tour of the continent is going to take a long, long time. Three months, minimum. This is a guide that can be easily used for a focussed tour, though it is really designed for a long-term journey.
Footprint and author Ben Box have been at this for a long time, so they have this guide down to a well-designed handbook to the continent. There's nothing really comparable out there. The major destinations - Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Cartagena, Cusco, Salvador - are right up to date and well documented. There are nice guides to the frequently overlooked countries, and the coverage of Bolivia is particularly good. The guide includes good coverage of important natural attractions as well. It's only when you escape into the provinces and the true hinterlands that you'll find this guide leaves you behind.
Maps are very, very basic but are accurate.
One thing I have noticed with Footprint guides lately is that they frequently come damaged. Bent pages, creased spines, bent covers, water damage, mis-cut pages. These are not things that happen during shipping, but happen at the printer. Footprint needs to seriously look at quality control.
