"This chronologically organized text provides comprehensive historical coverage of Latin America's politics and development from colonial times to the twenty-first century. Its standardized organization across chapters facilitates both the study of a given country through time and the comparison of many countries at particular historical junctures. Latin American Political History focuses on the political and developmental experiences of Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, and Colombia - together representing three-quarters of the region's population - and also considers the importance of Peru, Venezuela, Chile, Ecuador, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, Central America, and the Caribbean. The roles of leading political personalities are highlighted throughout and major patterns of political development are analyzed in the concluding chapters. Latin American Political History is an invaluable textbook for courses in Latin American history, politics, and government."--BOOK JACKET.

Ronald M. Schneider is professor of political science at Queens College, City University of New York.
