Book Cover
A Companion to Latin American History

This work provides a state-of-the-art overview of the history of Latin America in all its diversity. Comprising 28 chapters by leading world experts, this is a single source of information for scholars and students interested in Latin America's past and is the ideal starting point for further study. Latin America is defined as the vast region stretching from the middle of North America through the entire tropic belt, and extending south over plains to the glaciers and fjords of the southernmost inhabited regions of the earth. In the pre-Columbian era, the area incorporated hundreds of distinct language groups; today, there are still more than 20 independent nations in the region. This Companion recognizes this variety, while providing systematic chronological and geographical coverage of the basic historical trends and new areas of scholarly interest.
