What is Latin America, after all? While histories of the "other" Americas often link disparate histories through revolutionary or tragic narratives, Latin America since Independence begins with the assumption that our efforts to imagine a common past for nearly thirty countries are deeply problematic. Without losing sight of chronology or regional trends, this text offers glimpses of the Latin American past through eleven carefully selected stories. Each chapter introduces students to a specific historical issue, which in turn raises questions about the history of the Americas as a whole. Key themes include:Race and CitizenshipInequality and Economic DevelopmentPolitics and RightsSocial and Cultural MovementsGlobalizationViolence and Civil SocietyThe short, thematic chapters are bolstered by the inclusion of relevant primary documents ' many translated for the first time ' including advertisements and posters, song lyrics, political speeches, government documents, and more. Each chapter also includes timelines highlighting important dates and suggestions for further reading. A highly interactive companion website contains the full text of excerpted documents, extra images and timelines, film clips, and student review materials. Richly informative and highly readable, Latin America since Independence provides compelling accounts of this region's past and present.For additional information and classroom resources please visit the Latin America since Independence companion website at www.routledge/textbooks/LatinAmericasinceIndependence.
