Review quote

"My overall reaction is positive. It is an easy book to teach from, in that it follows a chronological chain of events and touches on the most salient events of Latin American history!" - Giorgio Perissinotto, University of California, Santa Barbara"I am pleased to see that Fox has broken with the country-by-country approach and has organized the book in terms of areas that are likely to be of principal interest to American students." - David William Foster, Arizona State University
