View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Now featuring scholarship published since the first edition, revised lists of recommended readings that include important books published since 1988, and appendices of rulers of Spain and Portugal, this lively, very readable history provides 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. As before, numerous photographs and maps lend immediacy to the narrative, and biographical examples of both conqueror and conquered illustrate colonial life. Clear and engaging, this extremely well-balanced book is invaluable for anyone who wants to learn about Latin America's colonial legacy and difficult transition into the modern era.

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
