Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

This collection begins in the aftermath of independence for the former Spanish and Portuguese colonies of Latin America, addressing the politics of state-building and the Latin American nations' establishment of their place in the fast-expanding global economy.

Topics covered include revolutions, wars and territorial changes, relations with indigenous peoples, the fitful progress of democracy, the influence of foreign financial interests, industrial and infrastructural development (including the building of the Panama Canal), slavery, immigration from Europe and the rise of political ideologies such as fascism and communism, amongst many other topics.
