"Well-organized treatment of an important period of Latin American history that is often overlooked, even though most contemporary challenges in the hemisphere have their roots in it."--Garth Hansen, Prescott College "A wonderful text; not only the best survey of the 19th century but also a joy to read. Students love its organization and wonderful way with words. I will adopt for future courses as well."--M. Sherry Johnson, Florida International University "This book is different from those for the same period of time. It makes explicit what others leave implicit--the fundamental and lasting importance of the historical events and developments recounted."--Gerardo Mora-Brenes, Highline Community College "I wish material of this quality and type (summary) were available in Spanish."--Newell T. Morgan, Northwest Nazarene College "Through comprehensive and skillful assessment of major trends and movements this book makes the complexity of 19th- century Latin America accessible to students and specialists alike. It has no equal and constitutes a significant contribution to Latin American history."--Jerry M. Williams, West Chester University "A superb synthesis of the complexities of a crucial century. Fully revised with new bibliographic items and an exciting and lucid review of Peruvian development in historical perspective."--David J. Robinson, Syracuse University "These are high-powered, well written, up-to-date syntheses--concise and complete."--Rene M. Descartes, SUNY Agricultural and Technical College Praise for the first edition: "A superb work, especially for beginning undergraduates. Offers a good overview of 19th century Latin America."--Sonny Davis, Western State College of Colorado Praise for the first edition: "Well written, often using the device of a biographical portrait to make larger points. It makes an enormous contribution; there is no other volume (in any language) that offers a synthesis with this range in this period.... Excellent...it will certainly blaze a trail."--Thomas E. Skidmore, Brown University
