Review:


"This is a well written, comprehensive and thorough comparative historical analysis of Modern Latin America presenting clear and effective analytical models with balanced national and regional case studies. A sound pedagogical design which will effectively engage students in discussion and prompt further investigation. A valuable contribution to any classroom." -Roger Davis, University of Nebraska-Kearney


"This is the industry standard for Latin American Politics...the broad coverage that does not sacrifice depth to achieve it provides an excellent resource. Furthermore, the chapters on trends in the region help students make sense of a diverse set of countries with distinct experiences and different needs." - Michael Touchton, Boise State University


"A thorough economic and political history of Latin America that pays very good attention to regions often marginalized, namely the Caribbean and Central America." -Ruth Percy, University of Southern Mississippi


"Modern Latin America has long been the gold standard in the field. Now, with enhanced country coverage ranging from Bolivia to Venezuela, it is as valuable as ever, inside and outside of the classroom...Modern Latin America covers the contemporary (1930-present) history of the various Latin American countries...better than any other textbook on the market." -James Woodard, Montclair State University


"I like the current edition. It is well organized and provides a comprehensive introduction to the region. In my opinion, it is one of the best survey texts available." -Felix Masud-Piloto, DePaul University


"This is the industry standard for Latin American politics. The chapters on trends in the region help students make sense of a diverse set of countries with distinct experiences and different needs."--Michael Touchton, Boise State University


"Modern Latin America has long been the gold standard in the field. Now, with enhanced country coverage ranging from Bolivia to Venezuela, it is as valuable as ever, inside and outside of the classroom."--James Woodard, Montclair State University


"This edition contains incisive commentary, clear discussions of the theoretical frameworks employed, and in-depth analysis of countries (or subregions) that is unparalleled in other texts."--Elena Jackson Albarrán, Miami University


"A classic in Latin American history and politics. . . . comprehensive, informative, well written, and pitched at the right level for an undergraduate text or as background material for a graduate class. The overall structure of the book-general history, followed by case studies, followed by a return to broader comparisons-makes sense."--Chappell Lawson, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
