PRAISE FOR THE PREVIOUS EDITIONS:
"Rare is the book in English that provides a general overview of Latin America and the Caribbean. Rarer still is the good, topical, and largely dispassionate book that contributes to a better understanding of the rest of the hemisphere. Peter Winn has managed to produce both."—Miami Herald
"This magisterial work provides an accessible and engaging introduction to the complex tapestry of contemporary Latin America and the Caribbean."—Foreign Affairs
"A clear, level-headed snapshot of a region in transition.... Winn is most interesting when he discusses the larger issues and to his credit he does this often."—Washington Post Book World
"Balanced and wide-ranging.... After canvassing the legacies of the European conquerors, Winn examines issues of national identity and economic development.... Other discussions survey internal migration, the role of indigenous peoples, the complexity of race relations, and the treatment of women." —Publishers Weekly
Peter Winn is Professor of Latin American history at Tufts University and a senior research associate at Columbia University's Institute of Latin American and Iberian Studies. He was academic director of the PBS series "Americas: Latin America and the Caribbean," for which the first edition of this book was a companion volume.
