Latin America in Crisis builds a clear-eyed consideration of the fundamental economic and political realities of Latin America today onto a framework of introductory history. It is a concise core text for Latin American survey courses that require both a historical perspective and an attention to contemporary issues. In its focus on patterns of political and economic inequality, and its concomitant concerns for human rights, Latin America in Crisis is also a book with a point of view. Chapter 1 offers a basic overview of theories explaining Latin American poverty. Chapters 2-4 sweep across the contours of history till the mid-twentieth century. Chapters 5-7 focus on political and military dimensions of revolution and counterrevolution through the 1980s. Chapters 8-10 interpret media-driven democracy, international financial institutions, and human rights in Latin America today.

About the Author:

John W. Sherman is a historian with expertise in twentieth-century Mexico. Sherman earned his Ph.D. at the University of Arizona in 1994 prior to returning to his native Ohio to assume a professorship at Wright State University.

Review:

"A spirited introduction to Latin America-a region of ever-increasing importance for the United States. It covers the essentials: from Columbus to Cardoso, the Inca to the IMF, while providing some new and innovative insights besides." -- Peter Henderson, Dean of Liberal Arts, Winona State University

"Beautifully crafted, wonderfully contentious." -- Donna J. Guy, professor of history, University of Arizona

"Just when I'd given up on Latin American history texts, along comes Latin America in Crisis. Sherman's provocative text abandons the tedious, under-analyzed master narratives that have tortured, confused, and misinformed generations of undergraduates. Instead, Latin America in Crisis provides the kind of explosive, in-your-face writing that gets students talking and makes teachers think. It's about time!" -- Robert Buffington, assistant professor of history, Bowling Green State University
