Synopsis:

"Significantly advances the discussion about the connections among race, identity, military service, and armed struggle in Latin America during a crucial period of nation-building."--Hendrik Kraay, University of Calgary

"Sure to become a standard part of the historical literature on the 'national' period in Latin America, these essays give an excellent ground-level view of the process of state formation through war."--Miguel Angel Centeno, author of Blood and Debt

Military engagements in Latin America between 1850 and 1950 helped shape emerging nation states and collective consciousness in profound and formative ways. This century, known as the liberal period, was an important time for state formation in the region, as well as for the development of current national borders.

This collection of essays aims to assess the role black and indigenous Latin Americans played in the military struggles of this period, and how these efforts contributed to the formation of ideas about race and national identity. While some indigenous people and Afro-Latin Americans came into closer contact with the descendents of colonizers as a result of military service, others turned inward with strengthened ties to their local communities. Many were at times victims of violent conflicts in Latin America, but they surprisingly also shaped the outcome of these wars and employed the wars to advance their own political agendas. The book offers exciting new interpretations and explanations of this key period in Latin American history.

Nicola Foote is assistant professor of history at Florida Gulf Coast University. René D. Harder Horst is associate professor of history at Appalachian State University.

Book Description:

“A collection of rare thematic unity, one that puts indigenous and African-descended people at the center of Latin American history. Foote and Horst refuse to replace heroic war narratives with heroic counter-narratives, however. Instead, they provide something far superior: a regional panorama of challenging interpretive complexity.”—John Charles Chasteen, author of Americanos

 

“A very welcome addition to the historiography, not only because it addresses a subject that has been forgotten for far too long, but because it does so by concentrating on the particularly important question of race and identity. . . . Uncovers the different ways in which the army actually altered the social structure of Latin America.”—Journal of Latin American Studies

 

“Rather than an old ‘drum-and-trumpet’ tradition in military history that emphasizes institutions and politics, this new approach brings the sensibilities of social history to examine warfare from a subaltern perspective. In particular, this volume engages themes of race and ethnicity in both internal and external military conflicts from 1850 to 1950.”—Choice

 

Nicola Foote, associate professor of history at Florida Gulf Coast University, is the editor of The Caribbean History Reader. René D. Harder Horst, professor of history at Appalachian State University, is the author of The Stroessner Regime and Indigenous Resistance in Paraguay
