This popular book, now in its fifth edition, is a lively interpretive history that continues to be one of Oxford's most successful textbooks. Modern Latin America, 5/e has been thoroughly revised and expanded throughout. The authors have added sociocultural sections and boxes to nearly everychapter. The boxes cover such diverse areas as soccer in Brazil, Santeria in Cuba, and the recent popularity of Latin music in the United States, all of which give this edition a distinctly new and exciting flavor. All political and economic information has been brought up-to-date and, as in earliereditions, the authors use an in-depth case study approach that guides readers through the major countries of Latin America, highlighting central themes including European-New World interaction, racial mixtures, military takeovers, and U.S. intervention in the area. With an insightful look into thefuture, Modern Latin America, 5/e will continue to be an exceptional text for undergraduate courses on contemporary Latin American history, society, and politics.
