Thomas E. Skidmore, Carlos Manuel de Cespedes Professor of History, Brown University. Peter H. Smith, Professor of Political Science and Simon Bolivar Professor of Latin American Studies, University of California, San Diego.Review:
"Skidmore and Smith's Modern Latin America has long been considered the standard source on the economic, political, and institutional history of contemporary Latin America. The fifth edition reflects recent changes in the region, and the text is enlivened by the inclusion of new illustrations and updated maps, tables, charts, and bibliographic essays. An attractive new feature is the addition of set-off quotes drawn from primary and secondary sources to highlight central issues such as machismo, political and social movements, and economic theory. The new edition provides a firm foundation for undergraduate courses on modern Latin America."--Judith Bieber, University of New Mexico
