Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Cutting edge in its approaches, vibrant in its debates, and relevant in its concerns to both current historiography and current politics, this book should be required reading for all serious students and scholars of Latin America.”—Peter Winn, author of Americas: The Changing Face of Latin America and the Caribbean

“The magnificence of this volume lies in Viotti da Costa’s plea for political engagement and intellectual integrity, as well as in the superb scholarship that rises to her challenge. This book will inspire a new generation of scholars and teachers of Latin American history to reengage their work and lives in the new politics and political issues bubbling up around the edges of the neoliberal order of global capitalism.”—Brooke Larson, author of Cochabamba, 1550–1900: Colonialism and Agrarian Transformation in Bolivia
