A best seller for the introductory Latin American history course, this text presents its account of pre-historical times to the present through its integrating framework of the dependency theory, which emphasizes the economic relationship between Latin American nations and wealthier nations, particularly the United States. This new edition includes a substantial increase in social and cultural coverage, namely of women, indigenous peoples, and Afro-Latino peoples. 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 by year) permits varying curriculums.
