Summary

This is the second edition of Peter Bakewell's highly successful complete history of South and Central America, which now offers fuller coverage of twentieth-century developments. The book provides a vivid, analytical narrative and is clearly and extensively illustrated with maps and photographs. It describes the environment and peoples of the region before 1500, and the Iberian society which produced the conquerors; presents the story of Columbus's voyages and their aftermath in conquest by the Spanish and Portuguese; and examines the means of European domination, the mature colonial societies of Spain and Portugal and their patterns of development in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. For the second edition the author has revised and greatly expanded the book's coverage of the twentieth century, and has included additional illustrations covering the twentieth century and updates to the bibliography to include publications since 1997. This second edition now provides a complete history of the region suitable for all students of Latin America.

Author Biography

Peter Bakewell studied at Cambridge University and has taught in the United States since 1975, at the University of New Mexico, Emory University, and now, since 1999, at Southern Methodist University. His major research and writing has centered on the history of silver mining, and related topics, in colonial Spanish America. His previous works include Silver Mining and Society and Colonial Mexico: Zacatecas, 1546–1700 (1971) and Silver and Entrepreneurship in Seventeenth-Century Potosí: the Life and Times of Antonio López de Quiroga (1988).
