“Eakin's clear organizational framework combines with his taut prose to produce a highly readable and informative history of Latin America. Students will want to turn first to The History of Latin America: Collision of Cultures to begin their education in the history of this fascinating region.” ―Todd A.

“This book is well-written and jargon-free, with accessible prose for the novice student of Latin America. Having used several different general survey texts in my introductory Latin American Studies course, I can truly say that this is my favorite.” ―Erin Minzenberg, Miami University, The Latin Americanist, on Brazil: The Once and Future Country
