Description

Burkholder and Johnson's interpretive survey of colonial Latin America up to the 1850s is both historiographically up-to-date and accessible to students in the first half of the undergraduate Latin American history survey, which is given by virtually all major American colleges. The text incorporates new research in social and economic theory while maintaining the essential narrative on central political events and the development of political and religious institutions necessary for undergraduate courses. The book covers both the Portuguese and Spanish empires in North, South and Central America. Divided into 30 topics convenient for assignment in a one-term course and illustrated with numerous photographs, drawings and maps, the book is a teaching tool for undergraduates. There is an emphasis on the interaction of Iberian and Latin American perspectives and events in shaping colonial history, recent research in women's and social history and biographical examples of both commoners and celebrities to illustrate colonial life.show more
