Editorial Reviews


"The book is eminently readable and peppered with engaging anecdotes and examples of the thoughts and activities of nineteenth-century folk, both famous and forgotten. . . . [A]n impressive achievement."
Journal of Latin American Studies

"Conway's impressive knowledge of the era makes his book not only a useful tool for students and academics alike, but also a really good read. Simply put, Nineteenth-Century Spanish America: A Cultural History makes history fun."
--Studies in Latin American Popular Culture

"Conway's survey is not merely good, it is masterful. His mastery flows from the enormous breadth of experience and understanding that he has developed over a professional lifetime working on nineteenth-century topics in a variety of countries. Like all real mastery, Conway's does not require (or admit) fuss. It does not fill his pages, but rather, inform them. It is the hidden part of the iceberg. The lucidity and reader friendliness of this book come precisely from Conway's not telling the reader everything he knows. Instead, he tells the reader--not the narrow specialist, but rather, the interested nonspecialist--what he or she needs to know in order to form an accurate idea of the topic and its place in the larger picture."
--John Chasteen, author of Americanos: Latin America's Struggle for Independence

"Conway renders the everyday cultural life of nineteenth-century Latin Americans in vivid prose that makes the reader feel like a witness to episodes and stories retold and analyzed with humor and verve."
--Peter Beattie, author of The Tribute of Blood: Army, Honor, Race, and Nation in Brazil, 1864-1945
