Description: This popular book, now in its fifth edition, is a lively interpretive history that continues to be one of Oxford's most successful books. Modern Latin America, 5/e has been thoroughly revised and expanded. The authors have added socio-cultural sections and boxes to nearly every chapter. It covers such diverse areas as the Argentine Tango, Santeria in Cuba, and the recent boom in the popularity of Latin music in the United States, all of which give this edition a distinctly new and exciting flavor. All political and economic information has been brought up-to-date and, as in earlier editions, the authors use an in-depth case study approach that guides readers through the major countries of South America, highlighting central themes including European-New World interaction, racial mixtures, military takeovers, and U.S. intervention in the area.
