This volume provides readings from the works of eighteen Latin American thinkers of the nineteenth century who were engaged in articulating and examining the problems that Spanish and Portuguese America faced in the one hundred years after securing independence.

The selections represent all major regions of Latin America. Although these regions differ significantly with regard to indigenous background, geography, climate, and available resources, their people confronted the common problems that surround the intractable challenges of statecraft and nation building: issues of race, international relations, economics, education, and self-understanding.

Burke and Humphrey provide fresh, accessible translations of key works, a majority of which appear for the first time in English; a General Introduction that sets the works in historical and intellectual context; detailed headnotes for each selection; a Guide to Themes; and bibliographic references.

Review:

A very good selection of primary sources, essential for undergraduates to understand nineteenth-century Latin America.--Erick D. Langer, Department of History/School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University



This will be a splendid and useful book for teachers of courses focusing on the nineteenth century who have been frustrated at the lack of accessible sources in English. . . . the selection of texts is as near to impeccable as possible in trying to capture Latin American thinking between Bolívar in 1819 and Arguedas in 1909. . . . this is a worthy collection of primary sources, and it will certainly be of use in bringing neglected texts and authors to the audience of students who have no Spanish.--Matthew Brown, University of Bristol
