In this lively and very readable history, two eminent historians provide a concise yet comprehensive study of the Iberian colonies in the New World from the pre-conquest background through European exploration, conquest, and colonization, to the wars of independence in the early nineteenth century. Colonial Latin America examines the Spanish and Portuguese empires in the Americas, and analyzes demographic change, labor systems, the colonial economies, and trade, while featuring a unique study of society, family, and daily life in the region. After a special section that provides a thorough treatment of the final century of colonial rule, the authors, in a concluding chapter, discuss independence, the colonial legacy, and the myriad problems that faced the newly formed nations. Numerous photographs and maps lend immediacy to the narrative, and biographical examples of both conquerer and conquered illustrate colonial life. Written in clear and engaging prose, this extremely well-balanced book is an accessible and invaluable aid for readers who want to learn about Latin America's colonial legacy and difficult transition into the modern era.

Review:


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 Florida
