Publisher Comments:

Here for the first time is a comprehensive yet compact history of Latin America in the formative period from independence to 1880. Covering all the major countries, The Emergence of Latin America in the Nineteenth Century combines a review of the issues and problems affecting the region as a whole with illuminating in-depth discussions of particular national case studies, and is written in a style that is both accessible and engaging.

The authors focus on the preliminary experiments in nation-building throughout Latin America and explore the conscious--if perhaps misguided--attempts by most leaders to adopt a liberal mode of both socioeconomic and political development. No pat answers are provided, but the nagging questions of Latin American "instability" and "underdevelopment" are examined, and the data and factors that come into play are presented and explained to students.

Incorporating the most recent research on Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia, this unique, single-volume survey provides complete and up-to-date coverage of the entire region during the critical era that saw the formation and consolidation of its distinctive national institutions, laying the groundwork for contemporary Latin America.

Synopsis:

The first comprehensive survey of Latin America in the formative period from the attainment of independence to 1880, when a quickening of economic growth and relative political stabilization ushered in a new phase of development, this book combines a review of issues and problems pertaining to the region as a whole with more detailed discussion of specificnational case studies. It examines the preliminary experiments in nation-building throughout Latin America and the conscious attempts in most countries to adopt a liberal model of socioeconomic and political development. Incorporating important new scholarship on Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia, the authors provide complete coverage of the entire region during a critical era that shaped contemporary Latin America.

Synopsis:

Fully revised and updated, this unique single-volume survey provides complete and even more up-to-date coverage of the entire region during the critical era that saw the formation and consolidation of its distinctive national institutions, laying the groundwork for contemporary Latin America. Covering all the major countries, the new edition features a new treatment of Peru based on important recent research, important new material on elections in imperial Brazil and the Mexican economy in 1810-55, and a fully updated bibliography.
