Review:

This in an extremely thorough and well organized text ... It also integrates the latest scholarship in the field.  I like the fact that it focuses on the lives of ordinary people in Latin America and that it is attuned to issues of race, class, gender and human diversity while at the same time bringing together the peoples’ different stories under a common history.
