Fully revised and updated, this unique single-volume survey provides complete and even more up-to-date coverage of the entire region during the critical era that saw the formation and consolidation of its distinctive national institutions, laying the groundwork for contemporary Latin America. Covering all the major countries, the new edition features a new treatment of Peru based on important recent research, important new material on elections in imperial Brazil and the Mexican economy in 1810-55, and a fully updated bibliography. The authors focus on the preliminary experiments in nation-building throughout Latin America and explore the conscious--if perhaps misguided--attempts by most leaders to adopt a liberal mode of both socioeconomic and political development. No pat answers are provided, but the nagging questions of Latin American "instability" and "underdevelopment" are examined, and the data and factors that come into play are presented and explained.

About the Author:

David Bushnell and Neill MacAulay are both at University of Florida (Emeritus).

Review:

"Well-organized treatment of an important period of Latin American history that is often overlooked, even though most contemporary challenges in the hemisphere have their roots in it."--Garth Hansen, Prescott College

"A wonderful text; not only the best survey of the 19th century but also a joy to read. Students love its organization and wonderful way with words. I will adopt for future courses as well."--M. Sherry Johnson, Florida International University

"This book is different from those for the same period of time. It makes explicit what others leave implicit--the fundamental and lasting importance of the historical events and developments recounted."--Gerardo Mora-Brenes, Highline Community College

"I wish material of this quality and type (summary) were available in Spanish."--Newell T. Morgan, Northwest Nazarene College

"Through comprehensive and skillful assessment of major trends and movements this book makes the complexity of 19th- century Latin America accessible to students and specialists alike. It has no equal and constitutes a significant contribution to Latin American history."--Jerry M. Williams,
West Chester University

"A superb synthesis of the complexities of a crucial century. Fully revised with new bibliographic items and an exciting and lucid review of Peruvian development in historical perspective."--David J. Robinson, Syracuse University

"These are high-powered, well written, up-to-date syntheses--concise and complete."--Rene M. Descartes, SUNY Agricultural and Technical College

Praise for the first edition: "A superb work, especially for beginning undergraduates. Offers a good overview of 19th century Latin America."--Sonny Davis, Western State College of Colorado

Praise for the first edition: "Well written, often using the device of a biographical portrait to make larger points. It makes an enormous contribution; there is no other volume (in any language) that offers a synthesis with this range in this period.... Excellent...it will certainly blaze a
trail."--Thomas E. Skidmore, Brown University
