A best seller for the introductory Latin American history course, this text presents an account of pre-historical times to the present through its integrated framework of the dependency theory. The authors emphasize the economic relationship between Latin American nations and wealthier nations, particularly the United States. A chronological approach allows students to keep track of events and comprehend their significance. The text's availability in two versions (i.e. comprehensive and chronological) suits varying curricula.
