Editorial Reviews


Professors Chasteen and Tulchin have compiled a work that addresses topics and issues vital to surveying modern Latin America in which they must interpret two centuries of life in complex, multiracial societies. They examine nine "problems" in modern Latin America: Spanish American Independence and Its Consequences; Making Sense of Caudillos and 'Revolutions' in 19th Century Latin America; African Slavery in Brazil; Urban Populism in 20th Century Politics; Images of Women; The Search for Cultural Identity; The Dilemmas of Development; Revolutionary Movements in Central America; and Inter-American Relations. Each selection is compiled by an expert in the field, begins with an introduction that provides an overview, followed by related selections by both historians and the makers of history. Each selection in turn pis preceded by an explanatory note that places it in context. Problems in Modern Latin American History also has a list of suggested further readings is provided at the end of each chapter. -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
