Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Other West is a boldly original and unashamedly controversial overview of the formation of the modern European world as seen through the shaping and reshaping of Latin America from the conquest to the present. This interpretation moves deftly between economic policy, politics, urbanization, race, religion, family life, literature, and education to offer a striking retelling of the history of globalization.”

—Richard Cándida Smith, author of The Modern Moves West

The Other West is a literate and sophisticated interpretive essay with many original ideas and controversial positions that will force readers to rethink traditional viewpoints. It also provides a novel European and Latin American viewpoint lacking in most North American historical surveys and succeeds in integrating Latin America into world history in an original way. It will thus prove to be as useful for advanced scholars as it will be for beginning students in Latin American and World History courses.”

—Herbert S. Klein, author of The Atlantic Slave Trade

“Marcello Carmagnanis The Other West: Latin America from Invasion to Globalization is an extraordinary work by a distinguished and mature European scholar. Although many have observed that Latin America is not part of the Third World but of the West, no one has undertaken the complex and onerous task of writing a book on the subject. This superb magisterial work is the product of decades of research and reflection and could only have been accomplished by a historian who has lived and researched in many Latin American countries, from Chile to Mexico. It is a brilliant synthesis that undoubtedly will become an indispensable introduction and reference work for all who are interested in Latin America and the Atlantic World.”

—Jaime E. Rodríguez O., author of The Independence of Spanish America

Synopsis:

The Other West provides a provocative new interpretation of Latin American history and the region's place in the changing global political economy, from the discovery of America into the twenty-first century. Marcello Carmagnani's award-winning and multidisciplinary analysis sheds new light on historical processes and explains how this vast expanse of territory--stretching from the American Southwest to the tip of the Southern Cone--became Europeanized in the colonial period, and how the European and American civilizations transformed one another as they grew together. Carmagnani departs from traditional historical thought by situating his narrative in the context of world history, brilliantly showing how the Iberian populations and cultures--both European and American--merged and evolved.
