Description: Written by two of the leading scholars in the field, Latin America and Its Peoplepresents a fresh interpretative survey of Latin-American history from pre-Columbian times to the present. It takes a thematic approach to examining the many institutions that Latin-Americans have built and rebuilt - families, governments, churches, political parties, labor unions, schools and armies - through the everyday#xA0;lives of the diverse people who forged these institutions and later altered them to meet changing circumstances.
