Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

This volume of readings examines the revolutions, civil wars, guerrilla struggles, insurgencies, counter-insurgencies, and interventions of this period. Offering a solid perspective on the Independence period, The Wars of Independence is an excellent text for Latin American survey courses and courses focusing on the colonial era.

Synopsis:

Wars of Independence in Spanish America offers a lucid assessment of the heritage of the independence struggle. The volume examines the revolutions, civil wars, campaigns, guerrilla struggles, insurgencies, counterinsurgencies, guerrilla campaigns, and interventions. The approach is thematic rather than geographical and the introduction draws together comparative and contrasting themes. Selected from recent books and articles, the selections are complemented with pieces from earlier historians, contemporary travellers, foreign army officers, and key statements by participants from different backgrounds.

Wars of Independence illustrates themes connected with the origins of the wars, the fifteen years or more of violence which differed according to region, and the political, economic and social contexts of the struggle. Finally, the book examines the product of the wars — and illustrates the difficulties for the new nations.
