From the Publisher:

Emphasizing the forces that shaped the past and reshape the present, this concise, interpretive, multidisciplinary survey sweeps through the history of Latin America as a region -- from the European conquest up to the present. It takes a thematic approach to the history, using individual case studies to illustrate each theme.
