Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The most concise, up-to-date, academically sound overview on the region. A must for faculty and students studying Latin America."--Jose Morales, New Jersey City University

"Discussions of political structures are detailed and persuasive, and students get a clear picture of the place of Latin American nations in the global economy."--J:urgen Buchenau, Hispanic American Historical Review

"A classic in Latin American history and politics....comprehensive, informative, well written, and pitched at the right level for an undergraduate text or as background material for a graduate class. The overall structure of the book--general history, followed by case studies, followed by a return to broader comparisons--makes sense."--Chapell Lawson, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
