When was Latin America Modern?by N. Miller
Pub. Date: 06/06/2007
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan US
Stemming from an interdisciplinary convention in 2005 at the Institute for the Studies of the Americas in London, this collection has a strong thematic integrity, but also illustrates the dramatic variety of approaches to the question of modernity. This volume fills the gaps in prior literature on Latin America's experience of modernity.
