Review quote

Praise for previous editions: "Without question the best survey text of Latin American history--either colonial or national period--that has ever been written."--James Schofield Saeger, Lehigh University"Expanded coverage of colonial social hierarchies and the family, along with a well-integrated and sensitive focus on gender, complement the lively treatment of economics, politics and popular culture that distinguished earlier editions. The fifth edition thus continues to be a mandatory read for undergraduate students and anyone interested in the story of how Spanish and Portuguese rule transformed the region."--Bianca Premo, Emory University"The most comprehensive introduction to Latin American history. . . .No other text available is as thorough in its approach to the three centuries of development within two distinct and separate empires."--Christon I. Archer, University of Calgary"A well-written, engaging text that does a fine job of linking individual experience to broader themes and analysis. . . . The book keeps getting better and better."--Ward Stavig, University of South Floridashow more
