Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The leading survey in its field, this lively interpretive history has been brought up to date in all areas, especially in its treatment of recent developments in Central America. The new edition also features a completely new chapter on the Caribbean. As before, the authors illustrate such central themes as European-Indian and European-African interaction, large-scale immigration in the late 19th and 20th centuries, populist political leadership, military takeovers, and U.S. intervention in the region, examining the influence of economic forces and social tensions on political conflict in each case and discussing recent economic developments in clear, jargon-free language. Lucidly written and enhanced by insights from social science, Modern Latin America remains the preeminent treatment of this vitally important subject.
