Review quote

I cannot recommend this volume highly enough. It offers an exhilarating panorama of the wonderful historical research on Latin America carried out in the past quarter century. * Rebecca Earle, English Historical Review * It is impossible to do justice to all the contributions and the wealth of ideas and debates they present. Considering that this must have been a long-prepared and tightly organised project, it is striking how different the contributions are. * Michiel Baud, Journal of Latin American Studies *show more
