From the Back Cover:

This landmark volume of Latin American history weaves the history of an entire region into a coherent story that emphasizes both common themes and regional and national specificity. This unique narrative provides an interpretive history of modern Latin America with a focus on the central dynamic of Latin American history—the enigma of poor people inhabiting rich lands—while establishing a firm point of view that acts as a starting point for classroom debate and discussion.

The Seventh Edition of Latin America has been updated and modernized to reflect recent research and interpretations, as well as to provide expanded coverage of World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, and late twentieth-century themes, thus offering students a more comprehensive view of important topics. Additional new features include:

  • Primary Source Documents: providing students with readings that give the voices of Latin Americans a chance to speak for themselves.
  • Stories of Latin American Women: offering a realistic view of the Latin American women's experience and influence.
  • Postmodern Approaches: encouraging students to engage in deeper discussions about the material and class conditions existing in Latin America.
  • Expanded Discussion of Current Topics: NAFTA, Chiapas, late 1970s-1980s military regimes, new social movements and election limitations.
