The Subject headings found in library catalogs are not intuitive, so begin your research with Keyword searches.
In the library catalog you may search for materials via keyword using terms like "Cold War," "women," "dictatorship," "politics," etc., combined with a place name like Chile, Caribbean Area or Latin America.
Works evoking Cold War era events in Argentina, for example, may be assigned Subject headings like these, but will be easiest found initially by using the words or terms in Keyword searches:
SUBJECT Argentina -- Politics and government -- 1955-1983.
SUBJECT Argentina -- Politics and government -- 1983-
SUBJECT Missing persons -- Argentina -- History -- 20th century.
SUBJECT Violence -- Argentina -- History -- 20th century.
