Overview

Colonial Latin America examines the history of the Iberian colonies in the New World from their preconquest background to the wars of independence in the early nineteenth century. Updated and expanded, the eighth edition of Colonial Latin America is indispensable for students who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the fascinating and often colorful history of the cultures, the people, and the struggles that have played a part in shaping Latin America.

"Textbook intended for college survey courses incorporates recent scholarship of much value for more advanced students. Uses standard political and economic approach enhanced by sharply focused sections on labor, the Church, and social life"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
