Dr. Linda A. Rodr_guez has assembled a new collection of essays that finally provides the historical context necessary to understand the Latin American military. The articles included here examine a variety of time periods and nations, from the counterinsurgency army of New Spain, to the nineteenth-century War of the Pacific, to the modern relationship between the military and development. The contributors look at the ways in which Latin America's armed forces have changed over time, and how external threats as well as internal rivalries have shaped the military. Together, these essays trace the roots of the military's power and the growth of its political influence.

About the Author:

Linda Alexander Rodr'guez is assistant director of the Latin American Center at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Review:

A superb, carefully crafted, and neatly balanced collection of seminal articles on civil-military relations in Latin America. It will be useful in any course on Latin American history and politics. (Thomas M. Davies, Jr.)

The editor's excellent introduction sensitively frames this outstanding collection of articles that treats the Latin American military from colonial times to the 1990s. Rodrìguez emphasizes both internal and external miitary missions, rightly focusing on the international context for development of the Latin American militaries. . . . A valuable text. (Loveman, Brian)

Another gem from the Jaguar series. . . . Professor RodrÌguez's introductory essay is definitive and should be incorporated into a general book of readings on the region. (Parameters)
