Description: Written specifically for students unfamiliar with Latin American history, this comprehensive narrative presents a variety of interpretations and theories from the last half of the century. The authors present main theories and analyses of the area's history, balancing economic, social and cultural views while expertly weaving in the history of minorities, women, the environment, culture, literature, and art. Primary documents begin each chapter, offering short glimpses into moments in history and setting the theme for the chapter to follow. Maps, images, bibliographies, discussion questions, and other pedagogical elements are strategically placed throughout to help students engage in research assignments, papers, and so on.

In 1999 he held a year-long Pew Evangelical Scholars Fellowship to continue work on his biography of Father Bartolome de las Casas (1485-1566).
